I have movies (.avi and .mpg 3 and 4) in iphoto. I exported them to an external hard drive. They showed up there, but they are not the movie, just an image of the very opening image. Ideas?

1. Try dragging the movie out of iPhoto onto the desktop first, then drag THAT file to the external hard drive. Does that make any difference?

2. There's no such thing as an MPG-3 movie. Indeed, there's no such thing as MPEG-3 as far as I know -- MP3's (audio files) are MPEG-1 level III, and I think we jumped straight from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4.
