Exclamation Windows Movie Maker: Cannot Finalize Movie
I have a Windows XP from HP here, and I've downloaded the latest version of Windows Movie Maker, and make a movie with it from clips and pictures and such, now comes the time to finalize the movie, but I can can't for some reason, the computer won't let me! Under "Finish Movie" I click "Save to my computer" and then I choose a directory and a name for the file, I click next, choose a quality (I've tried just about all of them none of them work) and then I click next again, the "Saving movie, your movie is being saved" screen comes up for about a second then is changed to : "Windows Movie Maker cannot save the movie to the specified location. Verify that the original source files used in your movie are still avalible, that the saving location is still avilable, and that there is enough free space available, and then try again"

Ok, well I've tried to save it to my desktop, My Movies, a folder anywhere as well as an external drive and none of those work, and all the source files are availble, if one isn't a different message comes up, so I don't think that's the problem and I have 90GB left on this hard drive! What is wrong?!?!?!

by "latest version" do you mean 2.1

have you tried saving it as a "windows movie maker project" first ....then reopen it and try saving as a wmv

Yes I did that, and yes I think it's 2.1 but I'll double check that, I've worked on this for about 2 weeks or so, so yes I've definitely saved it as a project before
