Windows Movie Maker message - Cannot Complete the Save Movie Wizard

I have a film in Windows Movie Maker and the lengh is about 13 minutes in total. i am trying to save as normal film in order to play in Windows Media Play but i have this message coming up no matter what i do or choose a different format.
the message is:

Cannot Complete the Save Movie Wizard - Your movie was not saved successfully.
"Windows Movie Maker cannot save the movie to the specified location. veryfy that the orginal source files used in your movie are still available, that the saving location is still available, and that there is enough free disk space, and then try again."

i have no problem with this space, no problem with my CD driver and still not working. Only this message comes up all the time. Can you help me to tackle this problem?

Well, are all the media files you used for the movie still available? It may be having difficulty finding the original source files, as part of the message implies.

Where are you trying to save the movie file to? I would probably try saving it directly to the C drive and see if I still get the error. (If so, then I'd try the desktop, especially if I were using Windows Vista!) If both of those still gave me the error, then I'd check all the media files used and make sure they're still where they're supposed to be.
