    Maybe, you've somehow missed what Matt said, "If you are on Vista you can upgrade to Windows Movie Maker Live for free (http://explore.live.com/windows-live...maker?os=other) and if you have Windows 7 you should be fine."

    Guess, you're still on XP then please disregard my post. I'm sorry if i couldn't be of any help...

    Hah hah, what @Onie said

    If you could mention which operating system you are on (if the above doesn't help) then we can suggest some options.

    Yep, the free upgrade to Live mentioned above should do it for you. If not try AVS4you - it's pretty cheap and you can try before you buy.

    As far as i can tell .MOV files won't work directly on either Windows Movie Maker or Windows Live

    but maybe i'm doing something wrong

    Microsoft says that you can:

    Windows Live Movie Maker Help Center - File Types

    Try doing a google search on how to import .mov files in to windows movie maker live, you should find your answer pretty quickly

    not spent too much time looking into it yet
    i know that you can't just pull the .mov files straight in, well you can but they don't work..

    i've looked in the help files and it looks like there is a codec/add on that allows it
    i'll dedicate some time on it this week and see how it goes

    While I got a Drift Stealth for Xmas, havent played with it BUT having read several threads here on editing, it seems common to need to rename some camera's output file extension. Apparently they use one format but another name for it so when a program tries to read it by extension, its the wrong codec. Perhaps someone could investigate this...right now I'm waiting for a replacement unit, the original one went brick mode when I tried to update the firmware
