empty MOV files

I am posting from Zimbabwe so don't have the support to help me out with a problem I am having:
I shot a small event on a Panasonic SD900 at 50p. As FCP doesn't support the .mts files I used Clipwrap to rewrap them to prores 422 and dumped them on my desktop. That all went well, and I viewed all the files in preview and saw all the media was working correctly - but a couple of days later when I imported them to FCP, half of them contained no media. I checked the source file and half of the clips had no video or audio and the file size of each clip had changed from a large video (average 350mb) to small "empty" file of 50kb. When opened in Quicktime the clip would play the full length but there is no video or audio! What's even more weird is that some clips are perfect!
Any ideas why this could be happening? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
