How are you doing the transfer from the camcorder to the computer? Firewire or USB? Firewire is better.
What else is running on your computer? Kill everything except the capture software.
Disk space... How much CONTIGUOUS free disk space do you have available? Defragment your hard disk AND (better yet) capture to a separate dedicated hard disk.

I would suggest using Firewire (IEEE 1394) rather than USB. Even thought USB 2 is a fast as Firewire, it does not work very well for the capture of video.
