I have sorted it by dumping my (XP) laptop & doing it on DD's (Windows 7) & it worked first time no conversion needed<Sigh>How bizarre!
...but what error message, if any, are you getting?
I have downloaded & cleared my computer of lots of additional add on bits about 8 programmes none of which can do thisI feel a bit stupid!
It plays in VLC media player......it is odd
I haven't tried uploading to YouTube but I suspect that they can take files in all the common formats, .mov included. It's strange that QuickTime won't open you file. Do you get a message about it not being able to open a file with this type? I'm wondering whether your file is damaged.
Nope - quicktime won't open itThanks for the suggestion
Will that mean we can upload it to You-tube?
Forgot to mention that the Apple QuickTime player handles .mov files and it's free to download from the Apple website.
What is the end objective? To burn off a DVD or to simply watch it on the laptop? If the latter then why not download a media player that handles .mov files?
Thanks - you made me realise how far I've got!

I don't know - I'm a techno disaster I borrowed DD's computer downloaded onto that - used a memory stick to transfer it to my laptopThen found out it needed converting to .wmv from .movNannynick recommended 'Handbrake' which doesn't seem to be downloadingI kind of feel pleased I got this far; and kind of embarrassed I only got this far (iyswim)
