I have been sent a hard drive with files I need for a project. They are .mxf files and are placed in the correct MXF/1 directory. Media Composer (7) appears to scan the files when booting. But when I open media tool, the files can't be located on the disc, so can't be imported to the project. I follow the drill of selecting source and destination in media tool, then closing media tool. Then opening again. And still can't find the files. As a check I was able to see other .mxf files on other drives with media tool.
Might this be media from MC8? Or is there something else I'm missing?
