Importing from Sony MRC1K problem, TC break

Difficult to know which forum for this one but move please if need be..

I've recorded a half hour clip from a Canon HV20 to the Sony CF recorder but after hitting the 2 record buttons on the unit (it's not in cam sync mode) an assistant decided to also record to tape as a backup. On reviewing the footage this action seems to have created a timecode break in the clip - it plays fine up until the camera record button is pressed then goes back to 00.00.00. although the clip is the same, same name etc.

Now when I try to bring the clip into FCP via 'Log and Transfer' I can only bring in the first bit of it before the TC break and it ignores the rest, although I can see that the duration of the clip is correct (30 minutes or so). I can't preview the clips using this camera as it's states 'preview unsupported for this format', therefore I can't set my own in and out points to get around this.

Any ideas? Not a huge problem as I know I still have the tape footage but would be nice to know how to get out of this one. Thanks in advance.

i don't know if this will fix your problem, but under the user preferences is an option "abort capture on dropped frames", try unticking this option, it might work...
