    Essentially "any" app that enables DV capture will produce exactly the same results.

    From that brief description, it's impossible to say. What are the specs of your machine? What are you capturing with? The more information you can provide about the editing environment you're working in, the better the chances of identifying possible problems.
    Premiere Pro, Encore, Photoshop, Ulead VS6, WXP Pro, Core 2 Duo, 2GB, 2 x 250GB SATA3 drives, 2 x 250GB USB 2 external drive, DVD writer, GeForce 7300 GS 256MB

    The biggest fool can ask questions that the wisest man cannot answer...

    Which drive are you capturing to and how much free space is left on it? Is it well defragged ect etc?

    In video editing, you'll be amazed at what problems disappear after a good defrag.

    No promises that this is your problem but it should be done and has solved capture problems inthe past.

    Hmmm not sure I have any more ideas.

    Only things I can think to check are the speed fo your HDD (at least 7200rpm?) and the format. Is it formated NTFS or FAT32? It def needs to be NTFS but even FAT32 and it's file size limitations should be able to cope with more than 1min 30 of video.
