Does anyone know what program I can use to convert a video edited in Roxio from a Roxio format .dmsm to a Windows .wmv.  I need to play this video in a Powerpoint presentation.

I've tried a couple programs and none can open the Roxio file.

Thank you,

You can't convert a Videowave project file ( .dmsm ) to a video file, because it's not a video file itself.

Project files (Videowave, MyDVD, etc...) basically contain only 'instructions' or 'notes' as to what you want to create.

To actually turn a Videowave project into a video file, you have to select the option to "Export as..." to a video file. In Videowave, that option is on the Output menu or you can use the icn above the preview window that looks like a film reel. Once you start the output, you'll have a plethora of video file formats to output to, including .wmv

What Roxio program suite do you have?

A dmsm file is a not a "video" file but simple a file containg the instructions and source files to use to create a video file. In Videowave, select Output and then select the output format you want.
