Have you installed all of the recent updates?
If so, is it one .psd with multiple layers, or is it multiple .psd files? Do you have any additional channels in the .psd (other than RGB)? If that's the case, you may be seeing the results of an implied alpha channel.
What are your system specs?
I haven't updated CS5 yet as I only got it two days ago.
The PSDs only have 1 layer.
Wether importing as multiple or singular it still does this problem.
I know I can import it as footage and the Photoshop layers are there with each individual image but I remember in CS4 you could import it as composition with the layer styles and this problem wouldn't occur, maybe they changed it so it's only able to be imported as footage.
I'm not sure, I find it strange how whenever I try to do it as composition it always shows the top layer's image I imported over the rest, even when I drag it onto my composition.
System specs are:-
Processor - 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory - 4GB 1067MHz DDR3
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5.8
Graphics - nVidia GeForce 9600M GT 512MB - HD Screen
Sound - FireWave 5.1 Dolby Digital
Harddrive - 464GB - 316GB for MAC - 150GB for BootCamp Windows 7 Professional
Please check for/install all Adobe updates and try it again (run the updater).
If you're still having issues, please look at this document to see if you may be missing anything. CS5 doesn't present any difficulty for me when importing layered PSD files, with or without layer styles.

You should always apply updates immediately upon installing an application. As suggested, please install the After Effects CS5 (10.0.1) update. That update fixes a lot of problems.
You need to uncheck Photoshop sequence. AE is thinking your psd's are an image sequence so the lowest numbered file is the first frame.
Thank you for that.
I've just been importing them as footage and that seems to be working fine as well.
I shall try without the Photoshop Seqeunce ticked.
I see that your machine only has 4GB RAM on it. If you're trying to use multiprocessing in AE, you can't because you far too little memory. Turn off multiprocessing and leave it off until you can get more RAM.
Oh, and if you're trying to use Open GL to accelerate rendering, don't. I doesn't work properly, and the folks at Adobe don't even use it.
