    Unhappy Importing video problem
    I have a problem importing video into iMovie. I was able to do this with no problem for the longest time, but a few weeks ago, I did everything I normally do, but instead of being able to import and iMovie saying Camera Connected, the computer gets very very slow when I turn the camera on, and nothing else happens. Any ideas how to fix the problem???

    Thanks.

    Cool
    Have you made any change or installs since the last time you imported a movie into iMovie? Also what version of the OS are you using and what is the version of iMovie?

    i have panther and a new emac. I had a similar problem and thought it might be the file vault. So I created another user for just video and bingo, no problems. This other user thing was the simplest way for me. I just log in under the other user and don't use that for anything else, but video work. This saves me from turning file vault on and off.
    i hope this helps. Anyone know if what I'm doing is ok and if there is an easier way?

    I have mac 0S 9 and the imovie 1. I didn't install anything new, besides from reinstalling a version of america online that I was having problems with.

    I've never heard of a file vault. Is that a Mac OS X thing? Or is there a way I could try that on Mac OS 9 too?

    From what I have read File Valult is new for OS X, but I'm not 100% sure seeing as I'm still a newbie.

    File vault is only in OS X.

    Since I cant get iMovie to work with my camera using a firewire cable, it there any way to import video into iMovie using a USB cable instead?

    The USB Cable should've come with your camera. If not, then your nearest Fry's or best buy should have them. But i dont see why you can't do it w/ firewire.. cuz i'm assuming that's what you've been using for however long you've been doing it.. right?
