    I had to change out from my XP PC due to a fault that couldn't be
    repaired. But I was able to recover my hard drive and have it as an
    external one now with just My Documents. I had an unfinished Movie Maker
    project. My new system is Vista 64-bit. I can't import my unfinished XP
    Movie Maker project to Movie Maker on my new PC. I get an error message
    about codecs. Can anyone help? :confused:

    Try surfing to the Microsoft website and tracking down the 64 bit
    versions of your codecs. They offer a few to download

    Ideally you will want to identify exactly which codecs you want and
    just install those. You don;t give details of your project settings or
    codecs you used so it might be a matter of checking your original video

    Avoid downloading codec packs...they tend to cause more confusion.

    Preferably, if possible, re do the project and use the codecs you
    should have already installed


    Windows Vista Home Premium x64 + SP1
    Intel Core2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.4GHz
    4GB RAM (DDR2)
    NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS
    Realtek HD onboard sound
