    Hello, just got my macbook about a week ago...and i love it...but i am having issues with iMovie. I noticed iMovie was not installed so after installing it from the OS disc's, I keep getting the "the application quit unexpectedly" message...tried re-launching but I am still getting the same message. Any ideas? I tried resetting the pram and repairing under disk utility...but still no go :confused:.
    Please help, any suggestions, tips, feel free! Thank you!

    Try deleting files with iMove in the name under YourUserName>Library>Preferences.

    Each time you save? Did you follow my instructions from the second post?

    Have you tried making a new project file?

    On occasion this happens to me in GarageBand...I'll be replaying a track I'm working on and it quits unexpectedly...would you recommend the same solution?
