help with FS100(ver3.0) and Avid Xpress Pro for new guy

I've just started to do some tests with the FS-100 and my HVX202 (PAL). I managed to get the FS-100 unit to record correctly with about 10 test clips in DVCPro (25)format with "OMF" set as the REC setting (for Avid ingest).
I did an "organize OMF", then connected the FS-100 to the Avid Xpress Pro (version 5.0), and switched the FS-100 to "DD". My PC shows the 10 folders which I assume are the clips, but there is nothing inside each one. There is another folder with a long number as the name which has a few Gb's in it so I assume that is the issue perhaps?
I'm unsure what to do when importing on the Avid side ... I have created the correct project, new bin and tried importing with the DV25 420 setting, but it returns an error if I try importing any of the clips in that large folder that had a few Gb's inside it. I am not that experienced on the Avid having come from another NLE system.
Can someone just give me some steps as to what I should be doing to import simple SD material into my Avid Express Pro please or is it an Organize OMF issue on teh FS-100? In addition, should I be importing directly off the FS-100 or can I transfer the files to another hard drive before hand, then import from there? If that's the case, what folders/files do I transfer across exactly?
