  • 4. Unspecified Error on Movie Maker
    If anyone has any idea as to how to help with this problem i would me most grateful! Last Sunday i was editing some raw footage i had taken a few days prior, and everything was going fine, then Movie Maker stopped allowing me to drag any media type into the timeline or frames. Next difficulty was that i couldn't import any footage or audio, it keeps coming up with "Unspecified Error" and the destination path. I have had the computer man in and he has tried shortening destination names, all the options, checked all media that they are Archive not Read Only and still nothing happens. So if anyone could offer me any help i would be so thankful! David
  • 5. Movie Maker Vista
    I heard there's a new Movie Maker that comes with Vista. Have people tried it? How does it compare? What are some of the notable new features and changes? What are the pros and cons? -- Ken from Chicago (surprised at the power of MM XP, once unleashed by pros like Papa John and Rehan, yet MS didn't seem to tout it in their marketing hype)

Hey Lise,

You might try installing the client version of Movie Maker 2.1  instead of 
doing it through Windows Update (if that's how you're installing it).  If 
you're using the client version, then all I can really think of is making 
sure you have SP2 (if using XP) and making sure that all critical/software 
updates relating to WMM(2) have been installed.

LEmme know if u need the client version, I happen to have one on my personal

1.Problem: Movie Maker shuts down whenever I try to load a movie

Whenever I attempt to load a movie file into Movie Maker, it shuts down. A 
dialog pops up that says: "Windows Movie Maker has encountered a problem and 
needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." That's all it says: no 
additional information.

Does anyone have any idea what I can do?
