weird. I have never heard of anyone having a problem with that, especially on Windows 7. As far as I know, you can't just add a video unless there is a locally stored copy. My instinct is that there are probably permissions issues that will prevent that from working, but I couldn't say for sure. If I had to guess, when you try to open it in Movie Maker, Movie maker is probably trying to change the metadata associated with the video. For instance, every file on a Window's system has a 'date accessed field' field. It may be trying to change that date on a device (the camera) which it does not have permission to do, and that may be causing the crash. It works when you load it onto your daughter's computer because then the system has permission to make changes to files.
When you say sub-directory, sub-directory of what?
