Hi, i have a slight problem with my powerbook's hard drive at the moment. Before i transferred my iMovie project from my external hard drive to my powerbook, i had 44 gig of free space. I also made a dmg file of a prior iMovie project so i could make multiple copies. When i finished with both files, i erased them and secured the empty trash, but for some reason, i'm missing 6 gig of hard drive space, does anybody know why this is? Thanks

Sounds silly, but check the iMovie Trash. Something like that happened to me when I was burning some DVDs.

Found the cause, for some reason, every changed i made, it created an idvd proj file in my Documents folder. I've managed to get some movies burnt through iDvd, it's a good piece of software but it does have its flaws though.
