Film loading issue

About a week ago I bought a mint-like Super Program. The first film loaded fine and I could feel the tension when I first advanced it. The 2nd and now 3rd roll felt like they caught however, when developed they were blank! How hard could it be to load film? lol.

Alright, what am I doing wrong or is it possible the drive spindle (or whatever its name is) it striped and not catching like it should?

I owe you one. I must have fluked out on my first roll because it caught, the 2nd and 3rd did not. I tried my 4th roll (after a small battle) and read the thread you started.
After reading the thread, the 4th roll loaded great. I feel silly and smart at the same time. lol. Thank you!
