- Tips for fixing problems
Conflict with other Movie Maker
You may notice that Windows Movie Maker does not produce sound for the mp3 files that you made in Movie Maker. You may try different formats but the problem persists. This may occur because of the presence of another Movie Maker in your system probably from your camera package. Uninstall the other Movie Maker or the media package. This may solve the issue and you may also uncheck all the filters in Movie Maker settings.
Problem with video capture
In some cases, the problem in video capture can land to media files not having sound. If you are capturing using TV tuner card or video capture card is when card is installed to PC, boot into XP, and install drivers from Optical drive or downloaded version, to finish the process at that instant. You may use Microsoft Encoder series in conjunction with Movie Maker to clean out such problems.
Ensure that sound is not muted because many wrongly do the settings to land in files of no sound. The file format is another important thing you must remember and you have to make media in Movie Maker only through the format supported by Movie Maker. If you updated your OS then there may be problem of driver version and you need to update the driver for the solution.
