For some reason windows movie maker is refusing to import a 103MB .wmv file
its quite important to do some simple editing of this file.

Convert the video to another format, try it again. Or simply use another video editing program, I never liked WMM anyway.

Yeah I would suggest converting the video and then trying it again. That should work
