    Windows 7 does not recognize films from my new Olympus 820-ihs-digital-camera on Windows 7. In properties they show up as “Windows Live Movie Maker” format . I have no problems with my other two slightly older Olympus cameras these films are “Windows Media player” format. Windows Movie Maker can't read the films from the 820. Any suggestion? :rolleyes:

    Have you updated your Windows, including Media Player and Move Maker.
    I think the latest Movie Maker is build 15.4.3555.0308.
    Anybody got a new version ???

    I just realize that the movies are MOV and AVI files, Movie Maker plays AVI but not MOV, I just downloaded the newest version and yes it looks like the one below. I read on Internet that because their are numerous more MAC users, the new cameras use now MOV so it can be used on MAC and Windows. I can play the movies with Quick Time but not Media Player or Movie Maker. Guess I have to figure out how to convert from MOV to AVI. Any suggestions?

    Format Factory is free and will convert your mov to avi as well as a lot of other formats.
