mpeg import filter error, what to do?

i downloaded an mpg file and want to open it with virtualdub.
it starts to parse it, then it says
"MPEG Import Filter: packet sync error on packet stream (41bffb8)"
the file seems to play ok but i'd like to find out the number of frames and reencode it and stuff.
so what can i do? how can i fix this?

i open vcdgear, select "mpeg -> mpeg", check "Fix MPEG Errors"
process the file...
and the file has the same size as before and i get the same error at the same position with vdub.

next try:
use avisynth to frameserve the file to virtualdub (via "DirectShowSource"). that should work if the file is playable in mediaplayer.

if you need more info about that, post again.
