clip browser is exporting only sound to .mxf

Hello Everyone,

My first foray into the Ex workflow has gone horribly awry, and I'm in serious need of advice. In a nutshell, I'm trying to export my Ex1's mp4 files into .mxf, but when I open the .mxf files in Premiere, there's no video; only audio.

Here's what I've done:
Using Clip Browser v. 2.6, I cut/pasted the entire bpav folder from the sxs card to my Mac's external hard drive (i know now cut/paste could cause problems! Next time, I'll export them directly to .mxf)

Still in the Clip Browser, I selected a clip from the hard drive and then tried Exporting it to MXF for NLE. It said the export was completed. I opened up a project in Premiere and imported the mxf file, but I only got the audio.

The video should be intact, because the Clip Browser's Preview window runs them just fine.

I've gone through dozens of forums in the past 6 hours looking for answers, and I've tried tweaking the Preferences in the Clip Browser to no effect. I'm new to both Macs and Ex workflow, having just made the leap from pc and dvcam to mac and tapeless. Guess I should have been content with a dodgy laptop and Vista!

Most eagerly awaiting advice!
