FS 100 some corrupted files that wont convert to quicktimes

I have just shot a corporate in Texas on the Fire Store 100. Most of the clips/files will convert in FCP to quicktimes. But for some unknown reason there are 8 that won't. We can see the pictures run in the preview but they wont convert. Information below from the Editor/Director:

This is what we are doing:

Connect the hard drive you brought back from the USA to the computer via a Firewire 800 lead.
Open a new project in Final Cut Pro and set it at ‘DVCPRO HD - 720p24’
Under ‘File’ in the top menu bar go down to Log and Transfer... and open it up
Now open up the hard-drive you brought back from America (Mine’s got the name ‘New Volume’)
There should be a folder called ‘FS 2 (Day 1)
Drag this whole folder into the left top hand window of the ‘Log and transfer’ window
A list of the clips in this folder (with thumbnails) should appear in this window
Now drag the following clips – one by one - into the bottom window (where it says ‘drag media here’)

0245ZJ
0246VJ
0248XJ
0250OJ (it might say ‘incomplete’ in grey letters after this)
0251NJ (it might say ‘incomplete’ in grey letters after this)
0258CJ
0260KJ (it might say ‘incomplete’ in grey letters after this)
0261PJ (it might say ‘incomplete’ in grey letters after this)
0265CJ

If these clips are going to work (and transfer to FCP) you’ll see a spinning grey wheel in ‘Status’ and a grey progress bar – this means the clips are being transferred to the Final Cut Pro project. However on my system a red exclamation mark comes up under ‘Status’. If this happens to you too we’ll need to go to an expert. The clips ‘play’ in the top right hand window of the ‘Log and transfer’ window – so they’re ‘on there’ - I just can’t get them into my project.
Let me know what happens,
Ta, Sven

Please advise on what i can try or if there is a specialist in London UK who could help.

Many thanks

SB

Actually you repair files in the FS-100 menu, there is no way to do it in the camera.
If you use the FS-100 often (or even one more time!), you should really shoot in the Quicktime mode, not the P2 mode as no "log and capture" conversion of any kind is needed by FCP. The quality is identical and the workflow painless. You just drag and drop the files right into your logging bin or timeline.
And the FS-100 workflow is VERY reliable. I have been using it exclusively with the HVX-200 for several years now without even a dropped frame. I have never used or invested in a P2 card, and won't until the prices come way down and they reach at least 64GB each.

Dual 2.5 G5, IO, Kona LH, IO, Medea Raid, UL4D, NVidia 6800, 4Gig RAM
Octocore 8 GB Ram, Radeon card, MBP, MXO
Windows XP Adobe Studio CS3, Vegas 8.0, Lightwave 9.2, Sound Forge 9, Acid Pro 6, Continuum 5, Boris Red 4, Combustion 2008, Sapphire Effects
