Re: Movie Maker not importing avi file
it's related to codecs.... the ones used by RAD video tools to make the AVI
if you usually go with the default selected by RAD tools, you might need to
select them yourself.
use GSpot to see which codecs the files are made with.... older ones that
work in Movie Maker, assuming they still do... and new ones that don't.
see my website's Setup Movie Maker > Codecs and Compressors page for more
details if needed.
