Sony HDV FX1 + iMovie HD = fubar

I've been recording a play and just want to import it into iMovie (latest one, 2006) and it imports.. but plays back slowly.. the voices are 'deeper' because of it and all that.



I quit it, tried again, same result.



I tried making a project at 25fps, it imports, but often hangs.



Then, I quit it, re-opened the project, and it tells me a couple clips went astray and are in the trash. I put them back into the Clip Panes and when I play them back, they're perfect. WTF?!?!



I'm using a Sony HDR-FX1E and recorded on a MiniDV tape @ 25fps, 1080i setting (which is actually 1440x1080... cheap Sony bastards... )



Anyway.. can anyone lend a hand?



PS I tried importing with FCP 5 and it works fine... but seeing I have no experience with FCP and this is a really straightforward project, I'd like to just use iMovie. Can I export a project from FCP to iMovie?
