Can't import songs in Windows Movie Maker RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to create a DVD with vacation pictures.  The pictures and videos load fine, but I am unable to import any audio files.

    The files I am trying to load were downloaded Mp3s and are in my Media Player library.  The error comes up and says

    "X The file c:/........Mp3 could not be imported".  It doesn't say why or give me another option.  I have tried importing it as media and also trying to add it directly to the timeline.

    Please advise!  Thanks!

  • Hi,

     

    You may not be able to successfully import some files if they have been encoded using a non-standard codec.

     

    You may try to import some other songs to test.
