    I was trying to take a series of videos that are in .mov format and import them into iMovie HD (iLife 05) to make one video, but out of 7 different videos all of them said that they couldn't import and said "unknown error". Is there some restriction where I can't put .mov files into iMovie?

    maybe they are corrupted?
    can you play them in the QT player?

    imovie is particular about what it likes/dislikes... it's really meant to accept DV files from a camcorder only.

    drag/drop them into toast, should work just fine.

    If they play well in QT, you could also try using QT Pro to export the .mov files to .dv before trying to import into iMovie. That way everyone is satisfied ;).

    Yeah but I don't have QT pro unforunately. :( Maybe it is time to buy.
