You'll need to tell us more about the DVD-R. Is it from a DVD camera, or a playable disc for a home DVD player, or it is just a data disc holding a video file? If that latter, what is the codec information and container extension for the file.

Also, what version of iMovie are you using?

I haven't dealt with one of those.

You maybe able to treat the disc as a camera and ask iMovie to "Import from camera...".

You may be able to use MPEG Streamclip to convert the contents. Handbrake might be another option.

You might need the MPEG2 decoder available from Apple for a small fee.

There are threads here on this very subject.


P.S. Now off to vacation for 2 weeks!
