I'm doing a simple test, in my Guest Account, with iMovie 9.0.9. I made a project on my iMac (stored on its internal hard drive), that uses three files (one video clip, one photo, and one MP3) stored on an external hard drive.
In iMovie, I've gone to File > Consolidate Media... No matter which of the 3 options I choose, iMovie will NOT move the photo and the MP3 to my iMac's internal hard drive. Those 3 options are:
Copy the Events
Copy the clips
Move the Events
Like I said, none of those options is working. The project on my iMac is still referencing/linking to the photo and the MP3 on my external hard dirve. Any suggestions?
