    I have the same problem. When I download analog video and sound from a s-vhs unit into my imac and imovie 06 it sounds and looks fine as it is recording. The problem comes when I go to play it back on imovie. The sound is there and the video is fine... however, there is a sound resembling a machine gun in the background that drowns out most of the recorded audio. I've tried everthing I know to do. Switching VCR's, switching cables, plugging in directly, trying different vhs sources. Clueless in Fl.

Can't upload videos to Imovie


Kodak series cameras capture videos in MOV files. iMovie will only import codecs that it can edit. iMovie can import MP4, DV, Apple Intermediate Codec, H.264, Photo JPEG, Motion JPEG, Apple Animation, and perhaps others. MOV is a multimedia container file, not a codec. It can contain any of the above codecs, but it could contain other codecs that are not editable by iMovie, such as MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 so that sometimes iMovie cannot recognize Kodak videos directly.
please try this video converter, good luck. kodak video to imovie

DCV-TRV460 Tranfer to DVD


Converting analog video, like from Hi-8, 8mm, and VHS to digital video is not as simple as plugging in a cable. If you happen to have a DVD recorder deck, you can burn a disc from the footage directly. Otherwise, you'll need to get some sort of capture device that converts the analog information to digital, then burn a DVD. I use a Hauppauge TV capture card, it converts signals from coaxial cable to digital on my hard drive. There are small, USB-based video capture devices readily available, some come with editing software, but you can always use Windows Movie Maker on a PC, or iMovie on a Mac.
