Problem with Capturing, bad tape?

We filmed a wedding this weekend with an XL2 and an XL1. No problems. However, today when we tried to dump our footage into final cut pro, we get this message after about 5 seconds of capture:

We've tried capturing using the XL2 and a tape from both the XL1 and the XL2, and we've tried capturing using the XL1 using a tape from both the XL1 and the XL2, and I keep getting the same thing. I've restarted our powermac and everything.

Suggestions? Please don't tell me our tapes are screwed up.

Ah! I had capture mode set to PAL instead of NTSC! Silly me. What a noobish mistake to make. I'll make a mental note of that.

Capture encountered a problem reading the data on your source tape. This could be due to a problem with the tape. Capture has been aborted and your clip has been saved.
