Windows Movie Maker Vista "Cannot complete Publish Movie"
Posted: 17 Mar 2008 01:20 PM
First post, sorry it's a request for help...

I'm under a deadline, using Windows Movie Maker for the first time on my Compaq PC with Vista Home. I used AVI files from my Canon digital camera, one mp3 file, and nothing else. I try to publish to any location, or to write it to a CD, and I always get the same message:

"The movie file cannot be published to the specified location. Please verify that the publishing location is still available, and that there is enough free disk space, and then try publishing the movie again."

Does anyone know anything that might be able to help me? I tried unchecking all the filters, it did no good. I also have a lot of room on my hard drive, and have even tried compressing it. Again, no luck. The thing that really sucks is that I put a TON of time into the project, and I was totally finished. Is there any way I can transfer the saved project to another video program?

Thanks in advance...

Most likely your problem is that mp3 file which WMM does not like. See this post for help:

Thanks a lot for the info. It looks like that may very well have been the problem.

Much appreciated :)

Namo7 and I are suffering from the same problem. The only difference is it seems to be that he has already solved his.

I tried doing what you suggested and converted the MP3 files I used for my video into .WMA. Thing is, it does nothing for me and the same message continues to appear. What else shall I do? Is there anything else left to do?

Please do help me. :)
