I tape my movies with a Sony Digital 8 camera, model DCR-TRV103, and import them to my MacBook Pro, using iMovie HD 6. This has been working very well. But one recent event I taped, upon importing, started breaking a long clip from the tape into very many short clips in iMovie, most only a few seconds long, with some just a fraction of a second in length. When the number of clips in iMove exceeded 100, I stopped the importing, even though the tape was less than half way through. I have not had this problem either before or after this one particular tape.

The event I taped was a ride on a tourist railroad, so I was bouncing around a lot. Maybe this threw some kind of errors into the tape? I'm grasping at straws here. Viewing the tape, as it imported into iMovie, it looks just fine, with no irregularities apparent, at the same time that dozens of clips are being populated.

I shot another movie after this one, and had no problems importing it into iMovie. But during this taping, the camera was stationary. Importing this one gave only two clips for an entire 55 minute tape.

Any ideas?
