Hi there,

I would appreciate any help anyone has on this matter. I have a major presentation due at 10am tomorrow and i have made a movie using windows movie maker and it will not publish!

The movie is 14 minutes long and it contains a whole lot of videos imported from my video camera. Everytime i go to publish the movie in the hope of putting it onto a hard drive or USB stick, it gets to 75% and then says it cannot be published.

Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas of what i can do? This presentation means a lot to me and this dilemma has reduced me to tears! I am not a very technological savvy girl but i came across this great website and i am really hoping you great people can help me.

Thanks in advance!

Hmm yes i have heard of a problem like this occuring when movies get 10min+ long.

Are you using windows movie maker on windows XP or Windows live movie maker on vista/windows 7?

Thank you for your replies, turns out we have solved the issue by burning the movie to a DVD disk.

Thanks again.
