Can't export to camera

I have one more question...
I just want to export a movie I have in iMovie directly to my DV camera - I know I've done it in the past- but can't figure it out now...
I go to share the camcorder/camera (and my camera is hooked up to the computer by fire wire - iMovie reads it- as if it is importing) - but I want to export to the camera- when i try it says it does not read the connection or something like that - my camera is on VCR mode (which I am assuming is VTR) why does it read it for importing but not exporting? I've tried two different cameras and two different computers with two different versions of iMovie- any advice?

iMovie 08 and 09 don't have this ability.

If you still have your copy of iMovie 06 HD, you can export your iMovie 08/09 project to QuickTime as a DV file, then import it into iMovie 6 HD, put it in the timeline and export to tape. You do lose a bit of quality with the recompression, but that's the only way I know to accomplish what you want.

This might make a nice shareware idea for someone to develop.
