Sony PMW EX3 large file splitting

Hi there

Really hoping i can get some help.
I am shooting on a PMW EX3
Onto SxS cards
Editing in Premiere Pro cs4

On large shots over about 30/40 mins the files are being broken in to sub files. How do i stop it from doing this? and also how do i put them back together as Premiere Pro does not seem to be able to deal with it.

Any help welcome

This is normal as EX utilizes the Fat32 file system which has a 4 GB file size limit (more like 12-15 mins). Newer versions of Premiere allow you to import these 'spanned' clips as single files using the Media Browser. If you use File-->Import you can only get the <4gb portions.
