645N film advance

I got a 645N in an sale/trade deal. When I loaded a roll and hit the shutter release, I expected an advance to the first frame. Instead the roll of film was advanced all the way through the end. Am I doing something wrong?

Here's the manual for it if you don't have it (though it's a bit long):

Iʻve known people that have bought the 645 and 645N on eBay for really cheap and then discovered a problem with the advance film mechanism. What you described should not happen. Are you sure you put the empty spool on the top and the new film on the bottom? Itʻs possible if you did the reverse that the camera thinks the film is finished and needs to be completely wound.
