Hi there. I'm on Windows Vista, using Windows Movie Maker. Everything is working fine until I try to add videos. This error message occurs:

"The file '??.MOV' cannot be imported because the codec required to play the file is not installed on your computer. If you have already tried to download and install the codec, close and restart Windows Movie Maker, and then try to import the file again."
The video is off a nikon camera if that makes a difference.

I'd never heard of codecs before so started researching which one to download. The two that seemed to keep answering my searches were a Nikon RAW one, and simply to download quicktime, which can convert or play .MOV files. The problem is I don't think the purpose of the nikon codec is to do what I want and I already have the latest quicktime.

Anyone have any advice?

Thanks a million!

You can try also to find codecs special for mov. or just to convert mov to avi. I had a some mov files but I don't want to install quicktime player and I converted it to avi and mpeg with my converting software and now it works fine for me.
