Hi everybody. I am trying to import some movie files from my HDD, about 250 short home movies. I have two types of movies, one lot taken with a casio compact camera (010 .avi) which import no problem, but the large majority are taken with a sony compact camera (mov00914.MPG) that just will not import. I am going out of my mind. Is it the file type?? All these movies are stored on my HDD.
Any help would be great.
