Did you accidentally turn off the clip creation option?

There are times when WMM just won't make clips. I've had it work with DivX back in my days of using crappy Downloaded footage. Changing the codec may help, but don't be surprised if it does not.

sounds like they are trying to get it to split (or "Create Clips" on) mpeg files and not divx encoded avis O.o

I have flashy banners for Premiere and Vegas, but mot Movie Maker. Anyways, "Don't use XviD/DivX files in Windows Movie Maker"

Please pretend that the link is in all caps, bald and blinking black and red (I'd make a banner, but I spent twelve hours in a car on the road today and I'm tired).

And of course, by "Adobe Premiere", I mean "Microsoft Windows Movie Maker".
