This one is for the technical minded on here...again.

I am copying old TOTP performances from VHS to DVD. It copies fine, and I finalise the disc in the player. I transfer it to the pc, and it plays perfectly using media player. The problem is, when I put it through movie maker to transfer to wmv, it says there is only 19 secs of the track on the dvd. Yet, as I said, it will play in full on the media player, so it has recorded the whole track.
Anyone have a clue what is going on?
These are old OMD TOTP performances, so its in everybodys interest if someone can sort this!!  

Thanks in advance

Have you tried to convert the .wmv to say an .avi file? There is also a new beta movie maker at the MS Live site, that may also be worth looking at..

or do a search for a dvd to avi converter. there are free ones, or 30 day trials that should do the job.

Media player is a bit naff anyway
