In Need of SERIOUS Windows Movie Maker Help!
« on: October 03, 2007, 02:10:05 PM »
Hey there,

Okay well i seriously can't handle this anymore, my Windows Movie Maker has been utterly broken since X-mas Eve last year (when it suddenly broke down for no reason) and now i REALLY want it to work again, because it used to be my favourite hobby to make fan videos.

Basically, i can import vids/songs/pics, etc, and i can MAKE the video fine, but once i ask to save it to my computer (as in Windows Media) it NEVER works. I've tried e-mailling it, same message, saving it to disc, same message, i even tried uploading it online and it came up with the same message again.

EVERYTIME it says the exact same message:

"Windows Movie Maker cannot save the movie to the specified location. Verify that the original source files used in your movie are still available, that the saving location is still available, and that there is enough free disk space available, then try again."

Now the original source files are FINE, because i've tried numerous different files and movies and the video's still not worked. The saving location is also fine, as i've tried my desktop, folders, i even made NEW folders just to save the videos in, but still nothing. And there is certainly enough free disk space, as i deleted ALOT of stuff just to save one video, and it still didn't work.

So, i figured i'd re-install windows movie maker, following the instructions from this website:


So i type in the command, find the file, and put in the required disc, and NOTHING shows up on the disc, as if there's nothing there. I tried both discs (out of the two) and neither of them worked.

So i gave up that option. And i figure my last resort is to wipe my entire system, and start over again. But i really don't wanna do that, 'cause i've got files i've made on WMM that i've just not saved to Media player format- know what i mean?

So yeah, ANY help you guys could give me would be a bloody God-send, seriously!

Thanks x.
