I'm using archive footage in final cut pro 7, most of the files are .mov except several .mv4's - When I play back my cuts nearly all of the clips are blending together.. Any ideas on what's causing the problem and ways to fix it?? Thanks!!

The term ".mov" only indicates that the files are Quicktime movies. It reveals nothing about the codec(s) of the clips. The m4v files shouldn't be used in FCP at all.

Lacking any good information on the codecs of the footage, I would recommend using something like MPEG Streamclip (free download) to transcode all your clips to the go-to codec for FCP 7, ProRes 422.
