Incomplete loading of DV-AVI into VirtualDub?

    I captured about 1 hour of analog video material using the ADVC-100
    firewire device to convert it into raw digital video material. In
    order to cut this material, I tried to load the DV-AVI into
    VirtualDub. There was no error message or anything and the video did
    show in VirtualDub - unfortunately only the first few minutes, the
    rest wasn't loaded or shown.
    Playing the AVI with Microsoft Media Player worked too, but again only
    the first few minutes (up to the same point of time as in VirtualDub).
    The file system can't be a problem, I use NTFS.
    I can encode the DV-AVI into the mpeg format and the resulting mpeg is
    complete. However, I would prefer to cut the DV-AVI because cutting
    mpeg is a pain in the neck.

    What could be the problem causing the DV-AVI to be loaded incompletely
    by VirtualDub?
