Codec could not be opened-avid clip

Hi, I'm having another codec problem. This is from the past. I am unable to open a .mov clip that I originally created in avid (not sure what version).

I pulled the clip into an FCP project many years ago, and it was watchable then. The project was last modified in 2008. Since then I have updated to FCP 6 and and to OS 10.5.8 and come to think of it, I've changed computers (mac quadcore now).

When I look for codec info in quicktime, it's just gobbledygook. I'm guessing I need an older avid codec, but what? And where would I find it?

I saw an earlier post on this topic recommending mediainfo to analyze files, but alas, the current version in the mac app store requires OS 10.6 or later. Any ideas, thoughts on solving the puzzle of the ancient file? Thanks!
