Scisport is on a distinguished road

Yes, I realize this has been discussed before, but for the life of me I cannot find the answer. So here we go.
- FC version is 7.0.2
- OSX is 10.6.3
- Processor 2.8 Ghz Intel Core Duo 2
- Memory 4 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
I have used FC before and well acquainted. Recently I took a brush up course and used material provided in a book DVD. Had no issues while practice editing with this material.
Now have material saved I want to edit with. All video is saved on an external and in MOV format. No worries getting in imported in FC. However, every video I use starts to audio slide and by the time it reaches around halfway, full blown out of sync. Not by much, but it's definitely there.
I even took these videos and re-saved them in MOV format and same thing. With all this RAM there should be no need to shut anything down, but I did so. Same thing.
The interesting part is when using the test videos that were supplied on DVD and were imported into the MAC, no worries. Now I AM bringing those videos over from a saved file on the MAC itself, but that should make no difference. When bringing over the external movies into FC, they should react without a hitch.
Here's the fun part. ALL of these videos play perfectly on IMovie. All of them. So this makes me think there's something in the FC settings at work here. Then again, why did it not fault before?
One more thing. I recently upgraded to Snow Leopard and have seen a few glitchy items here and there. But this is the oddest.
Would really appreciate thoughts and suggestions. Frustration is setting in. And thanks

Keep in mind, I currently have FCS2, so if it's some FCS3 bug I may be way off base here - but it sounds like somehow you've got the time base screwed (DF vs NDF) up - either on import, or if it's from timeline playback, on the timeline - ie: the footage is being interpreted as drop frame and it's really non-drop frame or footage is DF and being interpreted as NDF.
