Hi there

We are transfering our images and movies from PC to iMac.. For some reason iPhoto is saying it doesn't recognise our movies. If we plug in the camera directly it accepts them straight from the camera but it won't take tem from the external harddrive - it says unrecognisable file format. But it wil play them from the hard drive... We're just not sure what to do as we want all our memories together.

Where should we be storing our movies?

Thanks for helping this novice! So excited about getting into our new iMac!
