Today both iMovie 8 and Final Cut Express are giving me this message. FCE while importing and iMovie did it after it quit unexpectedly. <br><br>iMovie worked fine yesterday but now when I start it up, it'll give me that message after a few minutes while it loads the movies I imported.<br><br>Would using a USB drive do this?<br><br>my photos
Out of the clear blue sky iMovie did that to me. I was going to show a movie I made and iMovie launched but never loaded any of the movies. I was stuck with the spinning beach ball. I ended up trashing the pref file and it then loaded just fine.<br><br><br><br><br>For Mike
doesn't seem like that would be the solution as FCE has a different pref file. i had a USB microphone that was causing issues (spinning beach balls, etc.) when i'd try and start up Garageband last week. i figured it out by reading the Apple discussion forums.<br><br>
Don't know what version of X you're running, I think 10.4.x if I remember correctly. Open up Console, in the Utilities folder, and open the Console app. Open up the Console log, Clear the log, then try to launch an app. Anything recognizable? Post the contents here. Once in a while they put up something I can decipher.<br><br>Anything in the iMovie or FCE crash logs? There may not be a log if it never crashed.<br><br>------> JD's Trivia game<br><br>------> MCF-MM Trivia game
