The yellow triangles indicate that the project can't find the particular items. Have you moved the voiceovers to a different location - using Finder for example?

No but I've copied and pasted a few of them to different clips… also for some reason, whenever I make a new voiceover recording, I can't hear the recording itself, but I can hear the other tracks ducking

OK, not sure I can help any further - other than suggesting that you Quit iMovie and restart. Sometimes that helps. Also, try shutting down and rebooting your MacBook Pro.
Also, try deleting iMovie's preference file. With iMovie closed, in Finder go to your User (Home) folder Library/Preferences. Locate a file named "com.apple.iMovieApp.plist"
Drag the .plist file to the trash. When next opened, iMovie will create a fresh file with the default settings, which you can change if desired in iMovie's menu (iMovie>Preferences).
Deleting the preference file sometimes helps when iMovie is not performing as it should - and will not damage any of your Events or Projects.

I did all of those things, but it still isn't working.
It is so weird, I have no clue what is wrong.

Sorry to hear that Shawn - I'm stumped! Hopefully someone else here can offer a suggestion. Maybe try a fresh project and do some testing to see if things work OK on that. Possibly, your original project is now corrupted in some way.

You're right, that's exactly what happened. After being on the apple technical care line for 2 hours they told me to do a few tests. They said it got corrupted on the way. IT was because I had too many voiceovers playing on top of each other, and in iMovie 11 there is a limit to how many you can have playing one time. So I deleted a few all the clips that had yellow triangles and magically the sound came back! They also said to use garage band next time to make complicated voiceovers and then import them into iMovie.
Thank you so much John!
I really appreciate it!

Great to hear that it's all fixed now Shawn! I didn't think there was a limit to adding audio tracks that play together, but there you go. The tip to use GarageBand sounds like a good solution for doing complicated voiceovers. Well done on getting this sorted!

It was very frustrating for me too. Why isn't there troubleshooting help or at least an answer for the yellow triangle in iMovie Help? My one clip with the yellow triangle was silent as were all subsequent clips (No triangles though). I tried everything suggested. Nothing worked. Finally I deleted the track with the triangle then all subesequent tracks worked. I reinserted and all was well. But the other annoying thing for me is, I used to be able to fade out one track and bring up full audio on an overlapping one. For some reason now, when I fade out one track, the other track goes down too!. I imported a track right from the musician's cd I was interviewing (m4a) so maybe it should have been an MP3. Anyone ever experience that? I have done this many times with no drama. Anywho, It's FINALLY publishing. All praises to the Most High!
