Movie Maker Error
I have a Sony DCR DVD108 camera. WMM does not recognize the camera. I have
my video files saved on my computer - they are in an MPEG-2 format but the
file extension is .mpg. When I try to import the files into moviemaker, I
get an error message: "C:\Documents and Setting...\2008021318064.mpg could
not be imported. An interface has too many methods to fire events from".
Does anyone know what this means and how I can get around it?

Is there a way I convert my MPEG-2 files to a format that is compatible with
Movie Maker?

Thanks for all hints, help and suggestions!

Re: Movie Maker Error
You might want to give Free Video Converter a try. You might be able to
convert it to AVI format. You can find the program at www.koyotesoft.com . I
have found it to be the best converter around.

Re: Movie Maker Error

If you rename the file to .mp2 does it then import properly... ?
Do you randomly have a bunch of third party codecs on the system?

RE: Movie Maker Error
We imported our movies via "Picture Motion Browser", a program that came with
the recorder. We had to go back to each movie, right click, and select
"convert to WMV and save". This made the videos useable in Movie Maker. It
might be a faster fix for you...
