Im just starting out with video editing so i used my old camera that shoots in .mov files. When i tryed to edit them in widows movie maker they would not import because they are .mov files. Is there any program for pc that will allow me to edit .mov files?

You didn't tell what that camera was and if the camera's supplied software offered conversion. So there isn't much to write about since even using for MOV CONVERSION is likely a DEAD END since without the small details no one can get this right.

the camera is a Kodak DX6490 (which sure is a digital camera that can record video but my dad won't let me touch his camera) and the software that came with it my dad lost (since this is a semi-old camera and he got a new one so he threw the software away).

I had the dx6490 and now a dx7590.

That's great! Ok, this camera has a PROPRIETARY FORMAT and only the Kodak software was able to convert it to something more usable. Since you lost the CD, go get the software from next.

I don't remember which program though. I would suggest maybe download Nero for a trial run.
