Tim,

The first version of both examples is correct. In the second version of your examples you have a double negative. If you expand the contractions it becomes a bit more clear, i.e. "I would not neither understand nor believe in what I saw...". In addition to being incorrect, the double negatives would cancel each other out and change the meaning of the sentence.
