multiple clips = frame drops?

I've had two instances where I'm capturing footage from my JVC hd100UA, and I've found every few seconds there's a 'glitch' on the tape - a dropped frame?

I use Adobe PP2.0 with Cineform, and when this happens, every 'glitch' creates a new .avi file. So 1 minute of footage is 20 separate clips, and they are all pretty much garbage.

Thankfully, I use a laptop with dvrack, and I capture to both tape and the laptop's harddrive. The dvrack clips seem to be fine.

It happened once, and I thought I just had a bad tape. Then yesterday, I took a tape that already had about 20 minutes worth of footage, which I had already captured. So I figure this tape has to be fine. But the new footage had the glitches. I also put in a fresh tape, and it also had the glitches.

Could the first tape have gone bad, like spoiled fruit? I use JVC's M-DV63PRHD tape.

thanks for any thoughts...

I would like to add that between the first incident in December 2006, and the incident yesterday, I used the camera several times without a problem.


So just to make life more complicated, the problem isn't totally consistent. The thought occurred to me that maybe condensation occurred, since travelling around New England in the winter, sometimes the camera is transported in cold weather, then I bring it into my warm office. I try to leave it in the camera bag in a corner for a few hours to let it warm up gradually.

But the condensation theory is just a theory :)
