Did the 550 shoot with 1080p mode?
If so, this is the first place to look, 1080p won't work unless it's transcoded to the specs of an FCE Easy Setup.

The video that we shot on the 550 was HD/FH which according to the Sony 550 manual is 1920*1080/60i. I'm not sure about other clips that were already on the borowed camera.

Mixed media on the storage device has been a problem with some cameras/cards.
Try copying the files that are 1080i to another card or storage device.

I had this probleme this morning and now know (probably) why:
I have managed my films not on the camera (Sony 550) but on my mac (by deleting most of the "sequences")
The camera does not like that:
Make a copy of all to your hard-disk, Reset the cam, delete everything on the cam....reconnect with the Apple via USB and it functiones again (was a problem of "invalid directory structure)
The old "saved sequences" cannot be directly imported to Final cut, but can be converted by the toast titanium ...
A lot of time wasted....but at least it functions now again......

Thanks fo responding with your findings.
Good point regarding the management of the cards and how the file structure can become not useable by a device.
It's always wise policy to use the device that the card works with to format/erase cards.
