    Hello and thank you in advance for your help.

    I've been playing around with iMovie and I'm having a lot of fun with it. I have a Sony DSC camera (3.2mp/.mpg) that takes pictures as well as movies. Unfortunately, when I import the .mpg file into iMovie 3 there is no sound. The .mpg file will play in Quicktime with sound, but there are no options to export or save as that will include the audio track. Can anyone please explain why I cannot extract sound from a .MPG file created by Sony DSC camera? I've even tried my trusty old Audio Extractor program and... nothing. Says there's no resource fork.

    Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Use QuickTime Pro's Export to extract the audio.

    You need a wav editor to do that.

    Try Sonic Foundry's SoundForge XP (cheap version).

    GoldWave is also nice. It's a shareware wav editor.

    Thank you for your responses...

    To answer; I'm using a G4 MAC and iMovie with Quicktime Pro. I must admit, I'm new here. Maybe I should have started off by contributing first, so I would like to start off by offering a solution to my own problem. I've also learned that this is a common problem with digital files created in .mpeg1 format, in my case a Sony DSC-S75.

    During my down time I manage to find a "great link"! This link explains how to convert MPEG1 muxed file for use in iMovie. Although there are a few steps involved, once you learn the process it's a breeze. I hope this helps out many others. Special thanks to Rodney Tamblyn.

    You could have tried QuickTime Pro, too

    iMovie is incredibly picky about the types of files it will import. Not even every QuickTime video can be imported. Enjoy the hell of iMovie.
