    My daughter created a video in Windows Movie Maker and has an audio track with music and naration. She has it saved on the desktop as a MSWMM file. The last time she worked on it it ran fine. Apparently the audio file is saved separetly, however. Now the visuals run fine and the audio is displayed with a red X. What should I be looking for as the missing file? I have tried looking for wma and mp3 files but can't find the audio track. Any suggestions?

    From Microsoft these are the supported file types in WMM. I suspect the audio would be saved in one of these files types. Also this link is specifically for Win XP. You did not mention which version. A Google search shows numerous links to explore.

    We are using a Vista Home PRemium machine. Would the audio file have the same date and time as the video?
    Thanks!

    A MSWMM file is a project file right? If so that project file contains the edits made to video and audio and pointers to where the audio and video is. You didn't perhaps move the original audio added to some other location? If so that's the problem since now the project file contains pointers to the audio that no longer exists at the location it was at. Its only after you turn the project file into wmv or avi file that the audio gets processed and you no longer need the source audio. If that's not the case then something must have corrupted the audio track edits or pointers and you'll have to redo the project with the original audio that you want added.
