Sorry, but that did not help with the question that I asked in anyway. If
anyone would like to help, please feel free to answer. If you ask for more
details I will do my best to get them. Regrettably, I am not an expert on
all these things. If I was, I would not need help!
Did you read the Wiki article I pointed you to, or don't you know how links work?
Mind reader here: Your presumed MPEG file is not suitable for editing, because it ran out of gas or the battery is empty, or a whole lot of other different reasons. The most likely is OE. That should answer your question.
Thanks so much. I dont know what OE is, but I aggree it is not suitable for
editing for some reason. Just strange that the freebie Movie maker takes
it. So much for expensive software
Genuinely sorry that I dont know all the technical things that people need
to know. I always try to find out when I am asked specifically and told how
to find them. I did look at the link, but that just seemed to be a lot of
stuff about posting ettiquette, nothing about MPEGS. Perhaps I got the link
wrong. All a bit hard for me as I have a visual imp[airment. Thanks again
In that link I gave you, there are two more links, the first one points to the WIKI troubleshooting article and at the end of that article are 16 specific questions. If while trying the various solutions offered nothing has helped, please answer those 16 questions. The second link is more directed to unanswerable or hardware related questions, so just start with the WIKI.
I have that problem in the past when my mpeg files was on old IDE hard disc.On same computer now with SATA discs no problem.
