    any pros out there can help me with my problem.

    I'm doing an imovie project using my friend's powerbook. I wanted to continue the project on my Imac at home. I dragged the file name and folder to my ipod to copy the project. then when I got home to copy the files from Ipod to my Imac it wont let me do it. it says dv missing error and something.
    Is there a simpler way to do this? do i have to copy more files i don't know of.

    thanks

    What iMovie version are you using? What are the contents of the folder you copied?

    As far as I know, the latest iMovie got rid of the media folders and instead embedded the media (the video clips you are using) to the iMovie project file (the one with the star on it), so it's supposed to be working. Used to be separate. Anyway, if you really wanna make a clone of the iMovie project you are working on, go to File>Burn Project to Disc. It will create another version of your iMovie project either in CD or in DVD. (annoying though if your project file is really big!!!)
