Customer Question
Hi Brandon. I...

Hi Brandon. I wonder if you can help. I'm using iMovie, and trying to export a project to a file. The share options are greyed out, and when I click the share icon at the top right hand of projects page I get the message "this time cannot be shared while it is still referencing media on the camera". I've tried deleting and re-loading files from the memory disc, but the videos only appear when the memory disc is in the machine.

Technician's Assistant: What application are you using?

Sorry? Latest iMovie Application?

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

Only the normal ones when requested. Last one about a year ago

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Microsoft Office expert to know before I connect you?

No Thanks

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No need Kris. I sorted it out myself as I created a theatre file which I used to burn to my DVD (which was the whole intention).Just one question, what is the best method of backing this up on my hard drive please?
Mac Support Specialist: Kris R, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

Do you have another HDD or Cloud storage?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Sorry, I have a remote hard drive attached to the machine that I use for keeping all my movies incase the DVD's ever get lost or damaged.Because of the problem with this file I have just stored a theatre file, but would quite like to actually keep an MPEG4 if possible.
Mac Support Specialist: Kris R, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

If you wish I can go over how to set up and use the back-up facility built into MAC OSX.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
