Hi! I have used Windows Movie Maker for several years. I have Vista Home Premium. Recently, I have had difficulty importing Mp3s purchased from Amazon.com. They are traditional southeast Asia music. I can play them with Media Player without any problem. When I attempt importing them into WMM a small box pops up that usually shows the upload of the file but it just freezes on the screen and totally freezes the entire Movie Maker program. The box cannot be closed nor can Movie Maker. I resort to Ctrl/Alt/Delete to unfreeze the computer.
I have made many slideshows through the years without difficulty. I thought mp3 was an accepted audio file. Do I need to figure out how to change the file to wav or wma or do the codec thing. If it's the codec....why for WMP and not WMM? Help and thanks very much! Granny Prince
