    Movie Maker - issue importing mp3's

    I just tried importing an mp3 and I'm receiving the message: "mp3 could not
    be imported. Class not registered." I don't know what this means. It's not
    a protected file. This isn't the first movie I've made, but this is the
    first time I've had a problem importing the music.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Just when I was beginning to like Vista... this is interesting... I tried
    your suggestion and the message I get is "Windows cannot find
    "regsvr32quartz.dll." I went into MM tools/options/compatibility to view
    video/audio filters. The only filter listed is "AVI
    Decompressor...windows/system32/quartz.dll".

    Thanks again for your help, Edward.

    ==========================
    When running the command:
    regsvr32 quartz.dll

    There must be a space between the 2 and the q

    Thanks John... I didn't notice the space, but it looks like it's gone from
    bad to worse. After entering the info, a new error popped up: "Quartz.dll
    was loaded, but the call to Dllregisterserver failed with error code
    0x8007005." I hate to ask, but any thoughts on this?
