    I have a WMV file that was created with MS MovieMaker.
    But MS MovieMaker won't open it because it's not a MSWMM file.
    That's strange to me. MovieMaker will create a file but won't open the
    same file that it just created.

    I want to edit the WMV file to remove a few seconds from the end of the
    video.
    What software will let me edit WMV movie files?

    Thanks,
    Terry in Texas

    Sounds like you're trying to open a project file which a WMV file definitely
    isn't.
    Try "File - Import Into Collection" instead.
    You may lose some quality when you save it though so make sure your settings
    match the origianl file properties. Right-click on the file after you
    import it and select properties to find out this information.

    You are confusing the ouput video file with the Project file.

    Use 'import to collections' to get the file into a new Movie project.

    Thanks guys, that solved my WMV problem.
    Now, I have another question.
    After I have finished editing the video, how can I get it to save in a
    different format?
    It always wants to save as a project MSWMM file.

    Will MovieMaker let me save it as a AVI, WMV, etc. ?

    Turn on the "Task Pane" option (View - Task Pane). It'll walk you through
    all the steps to do this.
    You can send it back to a DV camcorder only if you've got the newer version
    (5.1) of MovieMaker.
    http://www.windowsmoviemakers.net/Index.aspx is a good site to learn all
    about MovieMaker.
