Just bought a Flip Mino HD.  I want to be able to put the videos from the flip onto Windows Movie Maker so that I can edit etc. Is this possible and if yes how?

I tried but you can't. I ended up using Cyberlink PowerDirector for that...

Correction - you can't use Windows Live Movie Maker directly on MP4, but read my reply below on how to export the movie.

Be careful when plugging it in too, get a USB extension cable would be my advise. The swiss army knife USB plug is death for USB ports if you move it.

Bad design IMO..

I have the Kodak Zi8 which is similar. The USB is similar also (pops out) but it's on a flexible piece of rubber so less susceptible to breakage. But I still use a USB extension cable.

I edit the mov files in Mediaconverter for Kodak which came with the camera or rename their suffix to MP4 and edit in Sony Vegas.

You can actually edit Flip Mino movies with Windows Live Movie Maker... Open Flipshare, select the video your want to edit with Windows Live Movie Maker and click "Create Movie". Then select the newly created movie, right-click and select "Export to...".

The resulting movie is WMV and you can use with Windows Live Movie Maker. If you just use "Export to..." on the original movie you will get a MP4 instead.
