iMovie '06 would never delete/edit whats on tapes, right?

i am going to begin editing some video footage that I really do not want to lose at all. I am somewhat new to iMovie, so I am a little nervous about experimenting with everything. my question is, iMovie would never erase what's on a tape, right? whatever footage I play with on the computer would never affect the tape one bit...or am I wrong?

Plug in firewire cable into Cam and Mac (Mac is Cam spelt backwards :))

Click on import video in iMovie. Turn on Cam. Click import button. No video gets deleted on the Cam.

You can save back to a camera. That could overwrite content already on the tape. The safe thing to do is remove the camera after importing your video. It isn't likely you could make that mistake, but just be safe.
