Importing 1080i from z-1 to i-movie

I am trying to import footage shot on the z-1 in 1080i to imovie. However after about 2 sec the importing stops and it seems as if the computer cannot handle the load. Its a 17 in g4 powerbook 1gz.
Is that normal?
Thanks.

I have 1 gig ram

I have 1 gig ram but it is not the latest powerbook. It was one of the first 17 inch with 1 GHz speed.
I sure hope there is a solution to this problem.
Any advice highly appreciated.
Thanks.

I have a 15" 1Ghz powerbook G4 and it works OK (slow, very slow ;) but ok. So I guess yours should too!

very slow

Eric,

What is slow? The clip you are importing plays at recording speed or not?
When I import the clip plays at normal speed at first then slows and stops completley after about 2 seconds.
Thanks.
