    Question: My Canon C300 mk ii mxf files was damaged ??? how to fix it ?
    I have a major problem with files from SD cards which were used on my Wedding day.
    The first card had all the .MXF, .XML and .SIF files on which I successfully imported into Premiere Pro CS 5.5.

    The second card only had 2 files on totalling 900k. Long story short, I took back to rental company and they had to retrieve the data via a Disk Doctor of sorts. All files seem present and correct, and play in VLC player.

    They DO skip slightly at points but otherwise they seem ok. There are 8 .MXF files, and each one is about 2G totalling 45 mins of footage.

    I have tried several times, and with several of the files, to import to Premiere Pro but all I get is the spinning wheel. Nothing happens. I have also tried Adobe Media Encoder but again, spinning wheel.

    My fears are that the MXF files are damaged, only to be witnessed using the miserable VLC player, unedited, and not suitable for Grandparents etc.
    I would really appreciate any help,


    Well, Well, corrupt MXF files don't have a coherent structure. It’s really hard to recover them. So if for whatever reason your card structure doesn't come across intact, what can you do? As you know, Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Avid MC and other NLE system need a correct card structure to read and ingest MXF clips. In this case, transcoding MXF files to FCP (X) or other NLE natively compatible format in a 3rd party app is a feasible workaround.

    Overall, Brorsoft MXF Converter for Mac is the best choice. It will allow you to grab the .MXF files and transcode them into ProRes 422, DNxHD, Apple InterMediate Codec .mov, etc, ensuring maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, iMovie, FCE and more editing programs. You can batch transcode as many of them as you like and it works pretty quickly. Of course, if you are Windows PC user and want to work with MXF files in Windows Movie Maker, Sony Vegas Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, etc, download and install Brorsoft MXF Converter.
