Windows Movie Maker does not Detect Mode of Digital Video Camera

To resolve this issue, wait for Windows to detect that the mode has changed every time that you change modes. Pause after you switch the device from one mode to another. Then, wait for Windows to detect that the mode changed before you move to the next mode.
