It sounds like yours is more complicated and a problem actually in Producer but just thought I'd throw this out in the for what it's worth department.
Producer does not recognize .mov now.
I'm not having any problems importing my short .mov files into the current PSP version 4.51.3003. They're not from Imovie though. I'm using unedited .mov files that are created in both 1080p/30fps and 720p/60fps from my little Kodak Playsport video camera.
Now, having said that - my Video editing program, (Sony Vegas Movie Studio v10) often chokes on them so I've looked into similar .mov problems and can relate to your grief. My brief research (i.e a few evenings of Googling) seems to indicate this is a fairly common problem with Movie Studio using some but not all .mov files. Like the .avi format, .mov is a container that can have the video content encoded in more than one way with different codecs and some are more compatible than others.
I've never used Imovie and I'm certainly no video expert but I have to wonder if their encoding is somehow different and preventing it from being read by PSP. Does Imovie let you output directly to .mp4 format rather than converting the .mov to .mp4? That should load into PSP without any issues.
There are others on this forum with far more video expertise that can explain better but I just wanted to reiterate I don't have any trouble with PSP using these .mov files. In fact they look much sharper than when I tested an intermediate conversion to other formats since that inevitably introduces some level of visible pixillation.
I hope this helps to solve your problem
Yes imovie does let me export to mp4 files, but they are very pixelized. I am going to play with the different formats again and figure this out. I will post when I get back to this project. This week is super busy, I am going to play with it next week.

This will bring your old Windows XP computer "up-to-speed" with all the latest and greatest codecs which should solve your problem if it has anything to do with missing or outdated codecs.
It did for me
I am using my mac laptop with VM fusion to run PSP.
Solution was to download quicktime player to windows side of my mac and this helped producer recognize the codecs needed to run the .mov file.
