    This is a shot in the dark since iMovie 08 won't work on my old Powerbook G4 but with iMovie now running with a library, won't you have to define a location for your iMovie library on the external drive before you can put video there?

    I'm assuming if it worked with iMovie 06 then the hard drive is already at HFS+ rather than FAT 32 etc?
