p2 Mac spanned footage not importing

Hello All,

So, apparently far too late, I've learned that using Finder to dump your p2 footage is a bad idea. I've just found that 6 hours of irreplaceable footage is somehow missing or corrupt.

I used finder to copy and paste copies of my p2 cards, and ended up with folders with 14.68 gigs of data in them. All the MXF files are there, etc, but when I try to view it in p2CMS or import it to FCS2 with Log and Transfer, it processes the folder, but no clips show up in the windows. Premiere CS3 will import the files, but only plays audio, with a still frame for video. The footage was 4:3 60i DV recorded to p2 cards, with several spanned clips.

Has anyone run into this situation and hopefully found some sort of fix? I cannot fix the cards themselves as they have data on them that I need, and after dumping I formatted and re-used them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated at this point. I fear I may be really quite far up the creek. Need a paddle.
