Jenny, in addition, I did notice that you said "home movies" so this may not
apply but if you are attempting to copy commercial video tapes, some are
copy protected and this is the result you can expect. Also, WMM does not
seem to like MPEG files too much. I agree with Cari in using the software
that came with your capture device to create an AVI file for import into
WMM.

Cari, I use an ATI All-In-Wonder board and WMM regularly to capture analog
video with absolutely no problems. (I also use Roxio Video Wave and Serif
Movie Plus 4 with the same video capture card.)
