    Windows movie maker
    I would really appreciate some help. I am trying to make a movie in windows movie maker and I have all of my music and pictures I wanted on there, but it won't let me save it, it acts like it is, but then before it even gets to 0% downloaded, it stops and says error message. Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem?

    What's the error message? You probably need to "export" the movie before you can save it.

    It says to check to make sure all photos are in original place, and the file is not to large for cd, and something else, but don't remember. But it won't save as a movie anywhere, cd, my computer, anywhere.

    Ah, this is a common problem, with a sometimes troublesome solution. Your clips have red X's on them, do they not? If so, what you need to do is round up ALL data used for the movie. Have it accessible for your computer. Then, while in movie maker, locate all of the data (just doubleclick on an item and it will let you browse for data). Do this until all information is found and replaced. During this time DO NOT unplug any memory devices containing data for your movie. Then, drop down "file" and "Save as Video".

    Does this answer your problem?

    Either way, I hope this helps. :)
