SYMPTOMS

You cannot import only a part of video from a videotape by using Windows Movie Maker in Windows Vista.For example, when you start the Import from Digital Video Camera wizard in Windows Movie Maker, you do not have the option to import only part of the video from a connected digital video (DV) camera. The only available option is Import the entire videotape to my computer.

If you select the Import the entire videotape to my computer option, Windows Movie Maker rewinds the videotape to the beginning and then starts to import all the videotape to the computer.

CAUSE

This behavior may occur if your video camera only supports the MPEG-2 format for exporting video to another device such as a computer hard disk. For these types of video cameras, Windows Movie Maker only supports starting the capture from the beginning of the videotape. However, after the videotape capture has started, the capture can be stopped at any time. When you stop the capture, the part of the video that has been captured up to that point will be saved.
