Try removing your motorwinder and see if the film can be forwarded 
manually. If yes, it is the motordrive that is causing the trouble.
There is a known problem with the motordrive contact coupling on the R8 
that could be causing your problem. Leica has adjusted the contacts on my 
motorwinder/R8 body when I was in Solms this week.
