Vista crashes while publishing movie in Windows Movie Maker/DVD Maker

I am trying to create a DVD from .avi file that I downloaded from my digital video camera. Every time I try to burn the DVD using Windows DVD maker or publish using Windows Movie Maker Vista crashes after a few minutes.

I am using Vista Home Premium on HP Pavilion dv9700 with AMD Turion 64.

Any help will be appreciated

    I did not have Nero, so that was not the problem.

    It took me 2 trips to Best Buy service and the motherboard, cpu, fan and keyboard were replaced.

    Finally I can create movies and burn them. I have made 2 so far and hopefully the problem will not be back.

    Thanks for your suggestion.

I just found out the problem.
I have nero 7 installed on vista. To fix the vista movie maker crash when rendering, I just renamed this folder
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Ahead\DSFilter
Renamed DSFilter to something else. VMM no longer crashes and when I want to use Nero again, just rename DSFilter back to normal.

I am attempting to add an AVI file and when i click on it to bring it in to vegas it freezes and will not respond. Can you please help me? I am running windows 7 and using vegas 8 platinum hd.

Hey there, things like that tend to happen with vegas, I know from experience. Anyways, if the file is playable in your media player (aka not corrupted) then you can just go ahead and open up good ol' Windows Movie Maker and drag in your AVI file. Without making any changes to it simply publish it, and you will have a brand new working WMV file that you can import into sony vegas with about the same quality.

Oh yeah also it seems that these days windows movie maker isn't standard on your PC anymore so you'll have to download it with Windows Live Essentials.

I hope I was able to help. If I was, please don't forget to rate my solution.

You can import files with the following file name extensions into Windows Movie Maker to use in your project:
  • Video files: .asf, .avi, .m1v, .mp2, .mp2v, .mpe, .mpeg, .mpg, .mpv2, .wm, and .wmv

Conversion from msdvd to avi in windows 7

Since you published a movie successfully using .msdvd format, you will not be able to play it on the other computers. However if there is Media Center installed on the other computers, then you will be able to play a movie successfully.
> You may try some of the free converters to convert the movie to a different format and check if it works.

Here are some free converters that will help you:

Windows Vista Movie Maker

The file you saved just tells your computer where to get the picture files and sound files on the slower computer. You need to copy those files also. The program should ask you where you saved the picture and sound files on the faster computer.

Fit to disc

My apologies but I'm not familiar with the Ulead product you use but I hope what I've written below may be of some use

Fundamentally you need to re encode the AVi to a smaller file size. It seems odd to me that you have AVi files that are too big for a 4.7Gb DVD disc unless you are using a flashy front end. A simple way to convert with minimum input from you would be to use Any Video Convertor Professional to resize the AVi file to a more usable size. By decreasing either or both the Video and audio of the AVI within Any Video Convertor Professional this should sort your problem out. Just ensure you keep the aspect ratio the same if this is what you require.
There is a free version of Any Video Convertor
