Solved Windows Movie Maker will not let me import Video.

#1
I was messing around with Windows Movie Maker, making some videos using pictures, adding transitions, effects. Etc.

But It will not let me import a video I have taken with my camera. I know there are a couple videos in a folder, and it doesn't even SHOW a video that is there. Is this normal? Are you not allowed to edit a video from a camera? My camera uploads in .MOV. I play them with Quicktime.

Ok, Thank you! I think I will be purchasing Cyberlink PowerDirector 9 Deluxe. From what I've read, it's the best movie making software out there!
