They probably need to be converted to a format that iMovie can work with. For that you'd need a video converter like Handbrake:

HandBrake

Video formats that iMovie can handle:

iMovie: Using footage from DV and non-DV sources

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

If you paid for it, watch your credit card. iSkysoft, Aireesoft, Aimersoft and other shady Chinese outfits peddle the same crap product with different front-ends. They advertise it by spamming forums and email addresses. I would not recommend their products.
