1) Make sure you have installed all updates through Software Update. If the Software Update says to reboot, do it before opening iMovie. Especially if it says to reboot for the QuickTIme update.
2) It is generally a good idea to repair permissions after running Software Update. Go to the Applications/Utilities Folder. Run Disk Utility. In disk utility, repair the permissions.
If it still doesn't work after that, come back and we can dig deeper.
That's about all we can do with the information you have supplied.
Maybe you might share with us...
What kind of camera? Brand and Model number.
What format is the original footage in?
Are you at 7.1.1 of iMovie?
Which Mac? Are you still at 10.4.xx?
Do you have any external drives attached?
Are you using symbolic links to redirect to an external drive?
Are you using File Vault or any kink of encryption?
it is a canon zr500. It is imported into dv (I think
It has successfully imported in the past to iMovie.
I am on 7.1.1 and at mac 10.5.1
no external drives (during import...have to unplug it to plug in the camera)
no symbolic links to extrernal drive (at least on purpose.)
No File Vault. (I'm unsure of what it is...if I am using it it is by accident.) It is not open.
THANKS! This is makin' me crazy.
You're kind to help.
