My progress (I hope posting here about my slow-going attempts to get up and running is the right thing to do): I downloaded the mov-converter from winMPG. It came with very little support or guidance and there were numerous things I had to choose from that I am not familiar with, such as codec. I tried many different combinations and kept coming up with errors. I then downloaded a similar program from River Past called Video Cleaner: http://www.riverpast.com/en/prod/videocleaner/index.php It has plenty of support and a good tutorial on exactly how to use the program, with screen shots. However, the program kept saying that my .mov files were not in a recognizable movie format. Argh!!! I am thoroughly frustrated that my Olympus' video function is so difficult to use on my PC. I think my next step will be to try to find evidence of others with the same camera discussing the video function. -Craige --- In videoblogging@yahoogroups.com, "Andreas Haugstrup" > The first step is to get Movie Maker to recognize the files.
