FS 100 Corrupt Static Clips?

So I have a FS100 DVCPRO HD that Iím using with a Canon GL2. Was easy to setup and configure with the camera and was really happy with it. I got it used for a great price and thought all was well.
The problem:
I noticed at first that I would get little blips of static in my recorded clips, maybe 01-2 seconds in length. And itís funny because it always seemed like it would occur at the same time. For example, If I formatted the drive and recorded 10 minutes worth of video Iíd always see static at 2:30, 5:50, 8:20 or so it seemed. As time went on the static would get longer and occur at more random times in my clips.

What I tried:
I assumed this had to be a HD problem. Something funky/corrupt with the drive so I went out and got a 160GB IDE drive and swapped it out according to HowTo: Upgrade a FS-100 to 250GB Really quick and easy.

The Result:
Same problem, static in the clips at random locations. Audio on some clips out of sync or even at a slower rate.

My conclusion:
Itís not the HD so what is it?

If anyone has any ideas or can point me to someplace that might be able to help Iíd really appreciate it.

After reading around more I have found that Focus Enhancements FireStore is not the way to go and they don't seem to interested in helping people with their products.

A simple solution to the problem I am having is just not to bother with Focus Enhancements FS in the first place.

If anyone wants my FS-100 I'll sell it for cheap. Might be good for parts, or at least a paper weight.
