It sounds like that file may be corrupt or damaged. When you copied your data, did you just do a drag and drop of the BPAV? If so, please consider using XDCAM Browser or ShotPut Pro or some other utility to do verified transfers. Mac OS and Windows copies should be avoided.

If the file plays in Browser, will it let you transcode it or rewrap it? Try export-->MXF FOR NLE or EXPORT-->MXF for XDCAM HD422. (The latter is a transcode and will be watermarked unless a license is purchased for the Main Concept plugin...still worth trying.)

Does this file play on the camera? Do you have the means (like a Kona card) to capture it into your Mac via SDI? Or to play it out to another device like a Nanoflash, PMW-EX30, SRR/SRW recorder etc? Otherwise we are going to have to start getting creative and keep trying different file-copy operations and versions of Browser/Transfer software in the hope of getting lucky.
