Premiere only imports audio from MXF files

Hi all,

I am a freelance editor and have to edit a commercial that was shot on a Canon I believe. I am having problems with premiere because I am trying to import MXF files and only the audio is imported. I tried dragging it, I tried using File>import, and I tried the media browser and I get the same result in all.

I have all the files on a hard drive under a folder I named "media". I tried downloading MXF converters and players but all of them show me audio files. I haven't been able to see a single video.

"All of the files are audio then" you might ask... Not true, because each file is around 12GB heavy, and I also have the transcoded footage, which means that the DIT guy who worked on set had a chance to transcode it from the MXF. So what's the best way for me to play those video files, and eventually import them to Premiere?

Let me know if you need more information.
