        I’m sure that I don’t have an imovie version and can’t seem to find one that will be accepted in this osx…what do I need to know or download to obtain a working version.

        I’m still new to an apple product so any advice would be appreciated greatly..

        Open the App Store.
        In the search box, type “iMovie”
        There should be a “Get” button at the bottom right of the iMovie box
        Click on “Get” and it should download and install.

        Edit: I just realized you have Snow Leopard. The above probably won’t work.
        Try this link:

        Or maybe this one on Amazon.

        You need iMovie 9.0.4. iMovie 9 shipped with iLife 11.

        It’s possible on the Mac App Store, if you attempt the download of iMovie, that the Mac App Store will prompt you to download an earlier version of iMovie suited for Snow Leopard (occasionally this works).

        If not, you can try to find iLife 11 on eBay or Amazon, or it is available for free on

        After installing iLife 11, you can run Software Update to update to iMovie 9.0.4, which is the latest Snow Leopard compatible version.
