FCP 7 pixel aspect ratio sequence setting problem - different size pictures in same sequence????

HELP!!!!!

A project I am currently working on has video clips which have come out three different size/shapes. Is this a pixel aspect ratio problem, as they were all filmed using the same camera settings? They were filmed in 1080p, FXP, with a 24p frame rate on a Canon XA10. I have set the sequence settings to:

frame size: 1440x1080
pixel aspect ratio: HD (1140x1080)
editing timebase: 23.98
compressor: XDCAM HD 24p (35mps)

At the moment some of the video appears stretched. If i change the pixel aspect ratio to square, it mostly seems in proportion but still three different sizes. Also some of the video clips fill the canvas screen while others have a black border all around (widescreen??)

How do I fix this problem without having to start the editing process all over again???

Thanks
Adi

Post the exact sizes and frame rates of the three different types of footage you have.

Are they different from each other or?
