Question: why do I get only a few frames imported

While importing from a Sony 1500A DVCAM deck several tapes imported several single-frame or three-frame clips followed by longer, useable clips for the rest of the tape. But the latest tape imported only as 1-6 frames each. So far I can't import that tape at all. As far as I know, I haven't changed any settings, so I can't figure out what's up.

Is there a work-around?

Thanks, Tom, but I don't see a way to make a movie via Quicktime.

I'm connected to my DVCAM deck by firewire (400>800). When I try Quicktime file>New Movie all I see as an option is my laptop camera. I looked at System Preferences but don't see an option there either.

I'm sure I can import via FCP 7 but I'd rather stick to my learning path on FCPX if I can.
