FCP 7 Strange Picture Lag Sync Weirdness!

Hi all

I recently went over to Final Cut Studio 3 from FCS2 and am having a nightmare doing a basic edit.

I'm trying to cut pictures to music but there's this strange problem where edits I've synced with the beat in the waveform, suddenly look out of sync and then the playhead and image in the canvas slow down while the video and audio sort themselves out and find sync together.

When I stop and replay from the beginning of the sequence, they're out of sync again before it decides to catch up. If I stop and restart very quickly with the spacebar, the sequence MIGHT play in sync.

Whereas normally when you stop the sequence with spacebar on the beat of the music, the playhead will be more or less bang on the beat - not now, as the playhead reads like it's a quarter way into the next bar.

It's making cutting a short sequence very time consuming and frustrating. It looks like a graphical interface issue and not an audio settings problem as I've seen on other posts.

My hardware is old now (Mac Pro 2,1 - OS X 10.7.5) but it was handing full HD and everything else just fine until I went to FCP 7.

Can anyone please shed any light on this bizarre problem?

Many Thanks
