Capturing DV from Sony Z1 and Sony A1

Hi! A couple of months ago I filmed a poker tournament with 2 Sony Z1 and 3 Sony A1. No problems while filming.

Now I've bought a Canon A1, and I wanted to capture the Sony-material with it. BUT, when i start recording (I use Premiere Pro 2.0) the preview jumps between 4:3 and 16:9 (Filmed in 16:9 and the camera is set to DV16:9), the sound is very bad and theres a lot of pixel errors, frameloss and the image is generally messes up. Tried many tapes from all cameras.

Any clues to why this happens? Some basic setting I've overseen?

It's probably a problem with the head alignment being different between the Sonys and the Canon. You could try capturing using another camcorder (even a cheap consumer camcorder, since it's DV).
