Probably because when you saved the changes on Vista you never carried the saved file information across to your XP installation. I'm guessing here because I use Moviemaker also and I dual boot Vista and XP BUT I keep my saved information on an external drive which I can access from both systems. Whichever system I use reads the same file.
