You have the CD and now you don't have the compatible CD for windows 7,
now all you have to do is to acquire your videos through (MOVIE MAKER SOFTWARE)

1.Microsoft recommends the free download of the latest Windows Live Suite, which includes Windows Live Movie Maker (WLMM) for Vista and Windows 7 (XP doesn't support WLMM). That gets you the newest version, but one considerably slimmed down in features from MM2.1 in XP or MM6 in Vista. It's good for quickly and easily making a video and uploading to YouTube, but not for anything close to the kinds of serious editing you can do with classic versions of Movie Maker.
Experienced users will want to continue with what they've become accustomed to. It turns out the special Vista edition MM2.6 downloads, installs and works fine on Windows 7. It was produced by Microsoft to help those who were having problems with the version 6.0 in Vista. Although stripped of many features, it's pretty much aligned with the familiar MM2.1 of Windows XP. MM2.6 is the only classic version of Movie Maker that's a stand-alone download from Microsoft and an easy installation ... get it at:



2. here is Movie Maker 2.6
MM2.6 has the features to fully edit and produce a video, but it doesn't have the importing feature of MM2.1. For that, you can use the import wizard in the Windows Live Suite. MM2.6 works well with the Pixelan Spice FX6 packages of extras and Wizards, and you can setup other custom effects and transitions to work with it.
I've copied MM1 and MM2.1 from my XP system and MM6 from my Vista system, registered the DLLs and they are working well. But I haven't yet added many of the thousands of extra 3rd party special effects and transitions that are on my XP and Vista computers.
It turns out installing MM2.6 also resolved some Issues I experienced with MM2.1 in Windows 7. It's not surprising as they are very similar with one made for XP and the other for Vista. The Windows 7 system is closer to Vista.
3.Now Importing a Video
In addition to the newest version of Movie Maker, the Windows Live Suite includes a video import wizard that works with a mini-DV or digital8 camcorder connected by FireWire. MM1 and MM2.1 in Windows 7 also capture video from my mini-DV camcorder, when connected by FireWire.
Imported video clips can be browsed in the folders of the Windows Live Photo Gallery or imported into the collections of the classic versions of Movie Maker.
Starting with no version of Movie Maker in Windows 7, I'm now running with five of them.


hope this helps you do vote if it helps you in this regard

Sharp VL-A10- Viewcam


These units are getting old. Sound as though some capacitors are going out. Repair bill could go to around $300. Consider a new camcorder.
