First, you should always have "abort capture on dropped frames" enabled in your preferences.
You don't say what kind of drive you're capturing to and how it's connected to the computer. You have a macpro so you can install up to 4 3.5" drives internally which are ideal. Although it will usually work, capturing to a firewire drive is not ideal unless you install a firewire card so the camera and drive are on different firewire buses (not different firewire ports).
Is this the camera that the material was shot on? There can be compatibility problems is you try and capture off a camera that did not shoot the material.

I am capturing to a sata hdd, and the camera is connected via a firewire cable, as usual. No firewire disk drive is attached. And yes, the camera is the material was shot on.
I tried "abort capture on dropped frames" settings both on and off, but no luck. I still couldn't find the reason. Im so unhappy with that...
