According to my video card company, ATI Radeon, the new drivers installed
new codecs and replaced some others.. that is why Moviemaker can no longer
open certain files. They suggested I hunt down the old codecs and try to
install them. Does anyone have a list or know of a website where I can
download the ORIGINAL set of codecs for XP SP2?

Use system, restore to a point before the addition of the card?

..mpg

Moviemaker could open these files BEFORE the video card driver install, now
it can't. The odd thing is, there are other .mpg files it CAN still open. I
understand there are several formats for .mpg and so... is there anyway to
tell what format a .mpg file is? Or what version?

And I can't use system restore. There is a Windows Update out now, released
yesterday, and stupidly I did that, thinking that would help. I didnt realize
until too late, that a Windows Update invalidates any previous restore
points. Dammit.

So, is there a place I can go to sort of download all the codecs for .mpg
for MovieMaker? Or is there some "fix" or "updater" for the program anywhere?

I am running latest version.

Thanks

open known good mpg files in mplayer2.exe (open this from the RUN
box)
in the screen right click and slect properties. Amongst the info in
there are the filter being used. Repeast this with the "bad" mpg and
compare.
