The issue is not that CS4 can't read MXF files (xml and other camera data files can sometimes come up as not imported if you just grab a whole folder and import clips from some camera-borne file formats. I've noted to Adobe that the software seems to present it to the user as some sort of malfunction when it isn't.) The media browser will typically only show you the files in a directory that can be imported. Rex stated, CS4 pre-dates the camcorder, though most importantly, CS4 did not support a Sony XDcamHD422 codec structure natively, and underneath it all, that is what the essence of Canon's video file is...

I think Main Concept had some sort of plugin that would adapt that format for those who were using XDcamHD422 at 50 Mbit prior to CS5, but I'm not sure if it makes a difference on what the file wrapper is (mxf), so I'd ask Main Concept about it before purchasing it, or you could just upgrade to CS5 if you have a 64 bit workstation...
