Convert it to WMV. WMA is audio, thats why you dont get video

Why don't you install a codec pack?
http://ffdshow-tryout.sourceforge.net/ is what I use.
http://download.cnet.com/K-Lite-Mega-Codec-Pack/3000-13632_4-10794603.html
is another possibility.

The option says as one "Video:WMV+WMA(ASF)" Theres no option to jsut choose WMV

I use the free FormatFactory program to convert from one file type to another. You will be able to convert from an flv to a wmv quite easily. The download url is: http://www.formatoz.com/download.html
Just be aware it will add an ask.com toolbar to your browser if you do not untick this option near the end of the install process. Good luck. Joe.

If you want to convert it to a DVD format his free program (http://www.spesoft.com/free-video-to-dvd-converter.aspx) will do it. It takes many formats, including .flv>DVD.

The download link is the one directly under the camera. (free)
