iMovie problem

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I tried my first foray into iMovie, but struck out. When I went to All Movies from the sidebar, the hundreds of movies were all grayed out and couldn't be transferred into iMovie.

They are marked as .MOV; mpg; wmv; AVI under 'Name" and under 'Kind" as QuickTime file; QuickTime movie; MPEG movie; Windows media; wmv; and AVI. when seen in All Movies, but are grayed out in iMovie.

I found some .mov files from my MacMail inbox and was able to transfer them into iMovie and edit them, so iMovie is working.

Why can't I transfer files from Movies? What did I do wrong? What should I do?
