    Two days ago i finished composing a 5 minute movie using
    windows movie maker 2. After i tried saving it it said i needed
    to verify the source of my files and check if i have enough memory.
    And that's my problem. I have no idea how to check for sources
    and im pretty sure i have plenty of memory.

    I've googled this problem and found others had the same troubles
    too but their was no good responses to help solve it.
    So, how do i fix this without having to lose everything?:)

    I have heard that WWM2 does a lot of weird things, so I dont know if this is one of these issues. having said that though.. I think "verify the source" means your "input files" . You must have loaded move, picture, and or sound files onto WWM2 before editting/ putting them together on WWM2 in order to create a new movie. If you once save it as a project, closed WWM2, and then came back to it, then you gotta have all of the source files that you used to make the project at the same locations of your computer and under the same file names that you had when you saved the project. Otherwise, the program cannot find those source files as the saved project does not contain the source files themselves. it only contains the names and addresses of those source files..

    Welcome, or you could try hooking up devices you had attached to your computer again and see if you can use the saved project.. If you haven't changed the addresses and names of these files, the saved project should work. In general, I recommend you import all files you are gonna use for the project from your camera, DVD/CD disks or anything else you may detach from you computer before starting a project. Not only does it avoid the hustle of having extra devices attached for a prolonged period of time, video editing programs often have easier time importing media (it can be faster) from C drive than a DVD disk, camera etc. You also wanna keep it in mind that if you wanna save a project file to continue on later, all these files have to be kept at the same locations of the computer under the same names throughout your project making process. So, name them wisely and think carefully where on your C drive to keep them before starting caz you won't be able to change anything until you finish making the final product! :p
