you need to copy the disk to your computer in a format imovie can read, to do this use handbrake, find it on http://versiontracker.com/ . This will copy the information to a quciktime movie that you then import into imovie to edit it.

Thanks, but im having problems. First off when I try and copy the disk it says it's going to take 8.3hrs!! The DVD is 1 - 1/2hrs long. I tried it anyways and yes it took that long but stopped in the last 32 seconds and wouldn't continue. I couldn't do anything and finally had to force quit to end it. There is a file but when I click on it a message says Quicktime can't read that type of file.

So what went wrong?

Thanks
