In November I had a hard drive crash that somehow also ruined my primary backup drive. Before the crash I was running Lion, now I'm back to running Snow Leopard.


I had to copy a lot of my files and such from an older backup, made when I was still running Tiger.


The problem is, iMovie refuses to display anything in the Photos or Sounds. It apparently no longer recognizes the iPhoto or iTunes libraries.


So I have reinstalled iMovie 08, iPhoto 08, iDVD 08, and iTunes 10.6.3. I trashed all the older versions of those apps and any associated files I could find (prefs, libraries, etc). I created a new library of photos and a new iTunes music library, since these were easy to replace. The only things I kept were my iMovie Events and iMovie Projects.


But iMovie still won't let me add any photos or sounds. It won't even show me the sound effects that came with iLife. (I checked, these sound effects ARE in the Library/Audio/Apple Loops/Apple/ folder, where they were installed.)



So I'm stumped. How can I get iMovie to recognize or load, photos and sounds? This was never a problem prior to the hard drive crash.
