What's the difference between the files? I would suspect that the problem
likely lies within the ID3 tagging arena - there's lots of ways to do
interesting-to-unsupported things with ID3.
If you clear the ID3 tags from the file, do they then import?
What's the specific error text you get from Movie Maker?
I'd ask if that file opens up in GraphEdt.exe on your system, but I don't
imagine you have that on your system. Is there a sample broken file
somewhere to look at/analyze this with... ?
Speaking for myself only.
for some helpful WMP info.
