    When trying to move a file from my documents to Windows movie maker the program comes up with a caption that the file mpg. is not avalid Windows movie maker project file, to import a video file to use on this project, on the file menu select import to collections when you try that a caption appears that says the file could not be imported. an interface has too many methods to fire events from.

    No, that's what I'm saying, How do you get files from computer to movie maker.

  • junedan Jun 21, 2009

    The files that come from card are movie01.mpg

  • junedan Jun 21, 2009

    The actual file location is My documents\IMx3SEVer4\20090618\200906618131649.mpg

    You didn't understand what I was saying so well, let me rephrase it. When you take the files out of the SD card, what are the extention?

    ex. A file from the SD card (movie file) is "movie001.avi"

  • pickmynose May 11, 2010

    what is the extention of the file that you are trying to edit? example. movie01.avi

I believe you have to pull the files from your computer into Movie Maker. Open Windows Movie Maker and use the import feature to get the video files.

I cannot open it with windows movie maker i use xp and won't work. It say's "it is not a valid windows movie maker project"

windows movie maker doesn't recognize mpeg 4 files. you need to use the software that came with your camcorder, or you might try downloading another player by doing a search for mpeg 4 editing programs. one other option is Media Converter (also media converter pro) there you can convert the files to avi or wmv that win movie maker can use.

Editing videos taken from canon dc100 camcorder

I see here that . . .

"The DC100 takes 3-inch Mini DVD-R/RW discs, and like most of its competitors, can fit about 20 minutes of best-quality video on one. If you choose to initialize a disc for playing in a standalone player, the camcorder writes standard VOB files; if you initialize for future editability, it records in the VRO format. Windows Media Player can play the latter if you rename the file with an MPG extension, however the aspect-ratio information gets lost--that info is encoded into a separate file--so 16:9 video will get squashed into 4:3. "

Cnet Reviews.

Your videos are recorded in the common DVD format called MP2.
They have the extention .MPG so if you copy the video files to your computer, and change the end of the filename from VOB, or VRO to an MPG then your software can recognize it as the MP2 format that it is.

There is a Windows XP program, called Windows Movie Maker, it can open your video files and provide you with most of the video editing tools.
