    This may help you out as it sounds like you may have an incompatible file.
    If not, post back with your cam make and model, how it is connected to the
    pc and what file type you are importing into MM.

    =====================================
    Try the link at the bottom of Graham's article that
    says, "Useful Programmes".

    And, maybe the following article will offer some ideas:

    Movie Maker 2 - Importing MPEG Files

    Re: Can hear audio but cant see video!

    It worked! Thank you!

    However, now I get this error message:

    The file C:\Documents and Settings\jjones\My Documents\My Pictures\PRJ
    year1\xmas5avi.avi cannot be imported because the codec required to play the
    file is not installed on your computer. If you have already tried to download
    and install the codec, close and restart Windows Movie Maker, and then try to
    import the file again.

    What codec is required and where can I get it? This is a HUGE help! THANK
    YOU!!!

    Re: Can hear audio but cant see video!

    It appears you have changed your mpeg file to an avi file?
    Most avi files are highly compressed ones, and as there are over 800 avi
    file types I couldn't possibly say which one you have.
    I would go back to your mpeg file and convert it to a wmv file as per the
    instructions on my page, or papajohn's.
