Thomas,

Copy the BPAV folder in its entirety over to a hard drive. Put the copied BPAV folder into another folder. Name your folder whatever you want. Start Clip Browser and navigate to your named folder. Clip Browser should see the BPAV folder inside and display the clip thumbnails. See if you can access your problem clips now and import them.

If you're on a Mac platform you can also try importing your clips using Sony's Transfer Tool app. Anyway, see how things go. Sometimes the EX1 will find a directory error on a card and ask if you want to "restore" the card. Did this prompt come up on your EX at all? Restoring does not reformat the card or touch the actual clips but instead will fix possible directory issues. But before you start messing with the card it's advisable to back up the card's BPAV folder as I've outlined above.

If you're successful in retrieving the problem clips then use your camera to reformat the card, rather than just emptying it. This will help to avoid a similar problem in the future.

- Don
