    I'm trying to get iMovie HD running on a Mac here as a matter of urgency. However, I get the above error message when i try to launch it. Its really important I get it up and running today, but I don't have the Install disks for Tiger here at the moment. All I have access to is another Mac with a working install of iMovie on it.

    Does anyone know if there's a hidden directory or the like that might have these components stored in it? I've copied across the Quicktime directory from Library, but it doesn't seem to have made any difference.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    What sort of Mac is it? Did you install iMovie by dragging it across from the other Mac? :)

    My problem too - and I did.

    I moved my entire hard drive to a bigger hard drive. I had upgraded my system and the software is only on the computer. So I used a file transfer utility to mirror the drive.

    But now my I-movie HD says "Missing HD QuickTime Component"

    Where can I go and get it from? I tried re-installing I-movie (not my system) from the original CD disk to no avail.

    I also have an i-mac system setup (later than my macbook pro), can I somehow get i-movie off of that?
