    Hi brand cook Welcome to the forums! What version of OSX are you running please? What is the Mac you are using? Also what camera brand and model are you using? How is it connected to your Mac? How much disk space do you have remaining? Thanks Rounik

    Hi Are you sure you're running OSX 10.3??? Did you mean 10.6.3? I didn't think iMovie 09 could run on 10.3... Try switching the playback mode of the XHA-1 to STD definition mode.... details on how to do this should be in the manual. Hope this helps Rounik

    Hi brandcook, Hmmm... this is odd... Do you have Quicktime Pro installed on your Mac? Can you try importing your footage into QT Pro? Another option might be to try a different firewire cable. Finally, you could try using SOftware Update from the Apple Menu and updating to 10.6.7 and the latest version of iMovie 09. (Always backup your important files and folders first of course). HTH Rounik

    Hi Rounik I have Quicktime X on my computer following the Apples directions for installing Quicktime 7 As follows To install the QuickTime Player 7 from the Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard install DVD: Insert your Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Install DVD. Open the Optional Installs folder and double-click "Optional Installs.mpkg". Select the QuickTime 7 option and click Continue. QuickTime Player 7 will be installed in your Utilities folder. Following these instructions in the "optional installs" the Quicktime 7 option is not there, am I missing something? Terry.
