Movie Maker only imports *.wmv files

My OS is Vista Home Basic. I have tried the pre-installed MMkr (6.0)and
downloaded MMkr 2.6. In both cases the only type of file I can import is
a *.wmv. When trying to import *.mpg, *.avi type files it tells me I
don't have the right codecs on my laptop to play these files even though
they play fine in Windows Media player.

Any ideas?

Martin

==============================
Windows Media Player and Movie Maker
are very different in what they will accept.
