iMovie Importing with a Border!? WTF

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I recorded the output of my powerbook g4 to my DV Camera so that I could import it back as DV and burn a DVD. All went fine, recorded fine. Play back on the tv from the DV Camera fine. I import it into iMovie and there is a very thick black border around the entire picture.

Uh.... what do i do? and why is this happening? I'm puzzled
