    Well for your kind information Windows 7 doesn’t include Movie Maker in the Operating System itself. You need to download and install Windows Movie Maker manually on the computer of yours. You can get this particular application software from the official website of the Windows Live. You can also use the software which are come along with the webcam in order to capture the Video and import the same to the Windows Movie Maker for doing editing and enhancements. In case that particular software is not available then you can get such software from the internet.

    Video Acquire Wizard in the Windows Live Suite is the by default tool to import things to Windows 7. Whenever you have plugged the camcorder and simply turned in to VCR mode it will prompt that it has begin with the importing process. File type would be DA-AVI. Once the import session has been finished Photo Gallery will launch in the screen automatically and simply provide the thumbnail for the new clip which you have created. You need to use Windows Live Photo Gallery for the purpose of Collection library.
