    I can acess movie maker and go thru the capture from video screens until I
    get to the video settings screen and it stalls out.
    My camera shows up on the list of devices ok.
    Does anyone have any ideas why the stall out?
    Thanks Jerry

    ========================================
    Are you connected via IEEE-1394 (FireWire, i.Link)?

    Hi John
    I am sorry, all I know , it is a gear head web cam with usb port connection.
    I have a HP m9600t desk top. Would the IEEE-1394 show up on my list of
    hardware some way?
    The camera icon shows up so I was hoping it was connecting.
    Thanks for your reply. If you can give me any more help it is appreciated.

    ==========================================
    Downloading video to Movie Maker via USB is hit and
    miss even when it tries to work. I doubt that the camera
    you describe has a firewire port.

    Anyway...the following article shows some graphics that
    may help you identify the port if your computer has one:

    Download video from your camera to your computer
    http://tinyurl.com/knj9k
    or.....
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/moviemaker/getstarted/DLmovies.mspx

    Your best bet may be to download the video to a folder
    on your hard drive / convert it to the .wmv format and then
    import it into Movie Maker.

    The following freeware can do the conversion:

    (FWIW...it's always a good idea to create a System
    Restore point before installing software or updates)

    Format Factory
    http://www.pcfreetime.com/
    (FWIW...when installing...you may want to uncheck
    all the boxes on the final screen)

    Good luck...

    Hi John
    This is how I do it now. Was just hoping to elimate one step.

    "Your best bet may be to download the video to a folder

    Thanks for the try
