Please help,
I have an older Imac 333 mhz with a cd tray and 6 gig hd.
is it possible to run imovie on this system - I have an imovie 1.0 original cd and it says that this program cannot run on this machine.

Thanks for your time

I'll give it a try later today on my G3 AIO and let you know what happens. What OS are you running, and how much RAM?

I use iMovie 2 on a 333hz iMac with OS 9.2.2. I'm not sure what the OS requirements are but I think 9.1 is the minimum.

thanks for the quick replies- I have a os 9.2.2 - i do not have a firewire port on this machine though and am wondering if thats necessary.

also the imovie version is 1.0 - original cd

i think i have like 300+ mgs of ram - 333 mhz

thanks again

Firewire is not necessary. Since your iMac is the same model & specs as mine it should run iMovie. The only issue I can see is that the iMovie CD may have been original to a different model, like a 400 DV, and the installer won't recognize your 333mhz model.
