Windows Movie Maker ~ Preview screen black

Help.
I created a project and burned a dvd just fine. The next day I opened the
project to burn a second dvd and the preview screen is black no matter what
video clip I try to play. I even tried importing a sample video that came
with my computer and that previews black too. Anyone know what I can do??

Have you updated your Video Card drivers?

It was working fine for the several days I was using it. When I checked for
updates from microsoft, it did not say I needed video card driver updates.
Could I still need to do it? If so how?

It doesn't necessarily have to say you need it. I recommend you go to the
manufacturers website, whether it be nVidia or ATI and download the latest
driver for your graphics card.

I'm thinking that's not it because movies, video clips, etc play just fine in
the Media Center and windows media player

I prefer Windows Movie Maker and i like that you can also save your movie back to the video tape in your camera to play back on a TV or on the camera itself.
