    I'm sorta just fooling around with iMovie HD and I remember back with iMovie '04 I couldn't import mpeg movies I took from my digital camera. Now I could for some reason however there is no sound. I have a Sony digital camera and I've heard things about the format they use or something not allowing things to work right or something, I'm not sure.

    It's not a big deal, just fooling around for now. But any ideas to why there is no sound with the video? However when I import some .mov files they work fine.

    This happens to me all the time.

    I use a little program called MPEG Streamclip to convert the mpgs to .mov -- then I import the new files into either iMovieHD or FCE.

    The new files are usually pretty large in size compared to the original, but iMovie shrinks them back down when I move the project over to iDVD.
