Usually there is a series of clips or levers of some sort that allows the film to pass around the sound drums and alignment path behind the projector lens. There is usually a line printed inside the projector to show the thread path for the film around the various mechanisms. But before you do that you might want to consider finding a photo shop that converts the film to a CD format. All of the old film media breaks down over time and you may be able to enhance it, preserve it and avoid burning it up in the projector(a common occurrence in those days) all at the same time.
I had a similar problem with my D-90 when I attempted to down load several video clips from the SD card in a card reader. Don't know why this happens but I was able to get the long clip by manually copying it from the SD card to a folder on my computer.
I then manually deleted the video file from my SD card. Until I read your problem, I could not figure out why that particular file would not download like the rest of them did. The other clips were 19 minutes but the long one was 22 minutes. It appears the limit for auto downloads may be 20 minutes. I have another camera that breaks long videos into 19-minute clips and I suspect the reason 19 minutes is the length is because of this aspect of Windows.
I'm assuming you're using a film camera then.
Try taking a photo just to make sure that the camera doesn't count up starting from zero (depends on your camera model).
Most likely when the film was loaded either:
1. The holes on the film were not lined up with the sprocket teeth in the camera.
2. The the film needed to be pulled out just a little further so that it is laid across MORE of the sprocket.
The first thing to decide is what sort of pictures do you want to end up with; black and white prints, colour prints, or colour transparencies. Then, in what format do you want to keep them; in negatives in storage, in digital format, or as prints in an album or book.
If b/w and as prints, the best film to start with is Ilford either FP4 medium speed or HP5 higher speed.
If colour print then Fuji or Kodak 100 ASA film.
To get started really cheaply there are loads of these types of films available on ebay listed under Lomography, mostly out of date films, but they will work fine to get you started. Keep in the fridge as soon as you get them, but let them warm up before you load or shoot them.
Supermarkets will develop only colour C41 process. I think a few will still scan to CD for you. If not buy a negative scanner, then you can print your own without a darkroom.
For fine grain go to slower film speed (50 ASA), for higher speed you will get more grain.
Best thing of all is to process b/w yourself.

this is quite normal, I have just tried that with my camera. Unless I do not move my camera at all, it is quite okay ( I was filming my parrots in a cage ) but if you move it, it needs to focus. It just is not made for serious filming, just occasional short movies. IF you think yours is too bad, make a short movie load it into youtobe and let me know. I will then try to see wether it is not ok. Vladimir
1.The film leader should be placed correctly. 2. the ASA detecting pins in the film champers should be clean. 3. Check for any buttons being in pressed conditions. 4.See whether the frame counter resets when opening the door 5.Then try with a mechanic.
