A bit more info would be nice, but my first guess is that they are in an incompatible format. Try exporting them from your editor into a .mov or .avi file that isn't using an h.264 or other .mpeg based codec, and they should import fine. Also, of course, make sure you have the latest Quicktime, and DirectX if you are on Windows, installed.

You may find the knowledgebase article "Why can't I get my videos to import?" interesting.
