I have years of taped video that I have imported without a date code and I have manually added the correct date within iMovie.


To save space I have now moved these files within iMovie to an external drive.  All appears fine at first, the Event Library has all the correct dates on the new drive.  However, when iMovie is closed and then reopened, it loses all the manually added dates, and I have one event for the date the files were imported from tape.


I have searched a lot of forums but have not found an answer.  I could just do all that manually work again on the new drive, but there must be an easier way.


Would upgrading to iLife11 help?

iMovie '08
