Imovie 8.0.6 error -50. Can't export

Time:October 11
Advertisement
Hi,
I have made a video on my imovie (version 8.0.6), but when I go to export the video to YouTube or my desk top it comes up with the following error message:
"Unable to prepare project for publishing. The project could not be prepared for publishing because an error occurred. (-50)"
I have seen other people have this problem but I either can't find an answer or when an answer is given, I don't understand it/how to do it...
Other information I see might be relevant:
- I'm using a Macbook pro
- I have lots of clips under 2 seconds
- I have lots of splits in the clips
(therefore don't really want to remake the video as it's quite long)
- I have used a mp3 for the backing track and muted the video footage audio.
- I have plenty of room on my hard drive.
What does the error mean? Can anyone give me a simple step-by-step solution to this problem please?

Hi
Can there be any external device that are not formatted as
Mac OS extended (hfs) ?
Must be so - UNIX / DOS / FAT32 / Mac OS exchange - works for most other things
BUT not for Video
