It doesn't work because your CD drive is a CD drive, not a DVD drive...it can't read a DVD.

A DVD drive can be had at Walmart for around $40...if you want to burn DVD's the drive will be about twice as much though

Transfer what you've got from your CD or DVD onto your desktop and go from there

Oh, just read more.. You can't put a DVD in a CD drive, it's like putting a basketball in your mailbox

Is it a retail DVD? I don't think Windows Movie Maker supports VOB files and such.

When you downloaded the movie it was probably an .avi file which Movie Maker supports.
