AVCHD Glitch in FCP

I'm sure this has probably come up in another thread so if I could be redirected or pointed in the right direction I would be extremely thankful. I've read a lot and I just haven't been able to find a fix yet. I'm having a problem logging and capturing HVCHD footage from my GH2 to FCP(intelMac). Before I attempt logging capturing footage, I moved ALL files from the SD card to an external HD(firewire 800) in a folder I could easily find, once I start the log and capture process it takes a few seconds for FCP to notice the footage, once It does and I attempt to capture all, it usually starts off well enough but then some of the files after a transcoding attempt will appear to have an exclamation point inside of stop sign. Those files never make it in the bin. I'll close FCP and try again with different results. Sometimes it captures sometimes it doesn't. The real problem starts when editing. I'll edit for hours and save only to comeback reopen and not only find files missing(even though capture scratch hasn't changed and I've reconnected all files) but after I reconnect, some of the clips have now become duplicates of another clip and the clip numbers no longer match, or the in and out points have been lost and all clips on the timeline now don't match there in and out points I set before dragging them on to the timeline and the entire edit turns a mess.

What version of FCP are you running exactly? 7.0.3 or?
How is your scratch disk formatted? Mac OS extended? or?

When you copied the files from your recording device, did you simply drag and drop all folders, maintaining their file structure? Let's hope so...
