    There's your problem, iMovie cant work with .avi files. avi's are an annoying little file type that "packages" audio and video, so there are may variations of it. One .avi might work, while another won't. You'll have to download a converter like AVS Video Converter - a universal AVI to MPEG Converter, AVI to DVD Converter. in order for it to work.
