    I posted this question at Apple's site but haven't gotten a response yet http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2370279&tstart=0

    Basically, I video taped an interview with a flip cam. At the same time, an audio tech was recording the interview on a DAT. When I grab the DAT audio and lay on top of the video (in iMovie), the last couple minutes of the audio drops out completely. When I open the audio in a separate audio editor application (Sound Studio) the entire audio is there.
    Any ideas why iMovie is doing this?
    video file is .mp4
    audio is .mp3
    Thanks

    try converting the audio to AIFF 48KHZ. I never leave audio in a compressed format ( not even AAC ) when possible when editing. There are just too many bugs that have come up over the years with this.
