i tried to import to iMovie and then export/share the iMove project

Ok let's take it from the top:
You set the Camera to import via FW into FCP?
the video ( and audio) should have been captured in
via the Capture Now to a Bin folder.
Originally, was the audio set for 12bit or 16bit on the camera?
( if 12bit, this would be the problem, as 16bit is what
is accepted in FCP)
Did the camera use an onboard mic, or and external mic?
Did the external mic have proper power at the time of recording?
When you say "audible" audio, is this audio that can be heard,
but not very loudly, or is there NO audio, not even camera hiss?
Lastly, what model camcorder, and what methods are you using
to capture into the computer ( FW, USB, third party capture card,
or third party capture box?)"Everyone has to learn, so that they can one day teach."
When I'm not here, Where can I be found?

Take it from earlier than that...
Can you hear sound when playing back the tape from the camera?
What audio settings does the camera show (may need to turn MENU DISPLAY ON for this)?
If it's here, you can get it in somehow, even if it's not correct.
If it's not here, you never successfully recorded it.
i can hear and see the audio/video playing on the camcorder
it is 12bit on board mic
played back on a connon zr__ captured to a external FW harddrive
when capturing i can see the video but there is NO audio whats so ever
when i stop capturing i can play the video but there is no audio and the meters do not move
I FIGURED IT OUT - the audio output was set to "play" through my external hd, where the file is being saved
changed that setting to default and/or built in speakers and i can now hear audio on playback
i still can not hear it on capture but i don't care about that
