    Movie Maker

    A group of kids have been doing the OCR National unit on movie maker.

    When they come to save the movie it works fine for 99% of the kids.

    Got one girl who when she tries to finish the movie it says
    "Windows Movie Maker cannot save the movie to the specified location. Verify that the original source files used in your movie are still available, that the saving location is still available, and that there is enough free disk space available, and then try again."

    She has access to the saved location etc. Its only a 3 minute film. Tried to do the save to CD option but get the same message. Theres nothing in the movie to indicate a missing source file etc. Tried changing the computer to no paging file but still the same problem.
    Any ideas?

    its usually the format of the video, we have had this before. Although the video plays fine in movie maker when exporting it goes nuts. Got round it by converting the video to another format and then back

    Hi James
    The movie maker project has been made from photos and videos etc. Not sure how you can convert that before finishing the movie.
    I have tried other formats (video for lan etc) but still the same

    It sounds to me like one or more of the source videos has been moved / deleted?

    If you have say 5 source videos stored in My Documents that you've edited in Movie maker and then you delete/move one of them and then try and re save the movie again Movie Maker gets upset. Can you check if this is the case?

    Cheers

    No thats not the case

    They are all in the original folder she saved them in and the folder movie maker thinks they are in too.
