    Unhappy iMovie 09
    Been using iMovie for sometime, out of the blue today when I click on Music and Sound effects browser, the beach-ball (aka hourglass) come up and stays there. I can wait 3-5 minutes and the sounds will list, but when I click on any sound, the beach-ball comes up for another few minutes. I can force quit but the problem persists when I reload.

    I have 4GB ram, iMac 24" 3.06 GHz, 455 gigs free HD space. No other applications running. I want to avoid a reinstall but me thinks that will be what most people suggest. Any other ideas?

    I had a similar problem (see my thread a few lines down "iMovie09 not responding"). I couldn't get anything to work so I had to trash my project and start again. The wisdom of the internet suggested I remove the iMovie.plist file from my personal Preferences file, although I never got to try this as I was looking in the wrong place. Try it and see if it works for you.

    As I understand you, iMovie itself is working fine until you try to access the music and sound effects in the Garageband folder?
