I was trying to put some .mpg & .wmv files of my brothers graduation into a video on Imovie and Idvd. They will not work. A .avi file works fine. I imported themn into Itunes thinking they would be converted to something that Idvd could use. What can i use to convert them? TIA

Check out my instructions on the FAQ page here on how to use VLC (free) to convert these files to .mp4 format. Then try using iMovie again.

Best of Luck.
