I am working on a movie for school. Whenever I go to import the video into Windows Movie Maker, It brings up a message that says, The file is not indexed and can't be imported. What does this mean and how can I fix it?. Please Help!!!

Hi cakern.
What file format is the video in?
You can try opening the file with the Windows Media File Editor in WMP and resave using the "Save and Index" function.
If the file is truncated or contains any odd characters, rename it first, then re-index it.
If it doesn't work and it's a .wmv file, this freebie should work.
If all else fails, use a file converter to convert it to .wmv, even if it's already in the format to start with.
Another freebie for that here if you need one.
