Hard to say without seeing the file/folder structure on the card but have you moved/renamed/modified anything in the BPAV folder? XDCAM Transfer and Avid MC want to see Top Folder (eg 'Card 1')/BPAV/CLPR/TAKR . You should also see meduiiapro.xml on the root of BPAV. This is the 'index' for all intents and purposes. If these are not intact they will not show the clips.

It may be easiest/fastest to rebuild the BPAV by using XDCAM Browser (v2) to manually import the .mp4s to another folder. This reconstructs all the metadata and will result in a properly structured card archive. I have this documented here somewhere; do a search on Rebuild BPAV or something similar..

Also make sure everything is up to date-- Browser v 2.0, Transfer 2.13.

Media Composer req's AMA for EX; I'm pretty sure the mp4s cannot be manually imported. The above apps and also the AMA plugins are at
