My camera stores all recorded videos as .MOV files. All I want to do is edit some videos cutting off the beginning and end, using Windows Vista.

.MOV fies cannot be edited in Windows MovieMaker. They can be imported but there is no sound. I've tried some free converters (to avi, mpeg or wmv) and either there were significant losses of quality, sync issues between sound and video, or nothing at all in some cases.

Anyone got a reliable converter for .MOV to a typical Windows format (.avi, .wmv. mpeg, etc anything that works for MovieMaker) or even better an easy to use movie editor for .MOV files.
