    Using iMovie 09.

    I import a sound track from an external USB drive.

    When I plug the external usb out - the soundtrack will not play?

    Copy the music file to your internal HDD* and then import it from the internal HDD into iMovie, as the method you use now is not working. How can iMovie find the music, if the storage device the music is stored onto is not connected? iMovie does not copy or move the imported music, unless you maybe tell it to.

    If you use an external HDD to store your video footage on, copy the music there instead of the internal HDD.

    Thanks for that - but I am looking at this from a Windows perspective!

    When I drag and drop the file into iMovie, it is obviously not being copied to the internal HDD right?

    ok so I will try putting the soundtrack on the hdd itself...

    As far as I know, yes. You can check the iMovie Preferences though.
