sounds like a codec issue, you may need to download a proper codec for your software to work.
1. mpg files are not edit friendly, if you can capture in avi, file will be large so make sure you have a large file storage drive seperate from system drive.
2. take a look at (as far as ease) windows movie maker
3. if you want a bit more capability, look at sony vegas studio platnum (adds dvd creation software) very good program!
