David:

You'll need to make them mono files. This is one of my peeves against a lot of the DAW software (on both Windows and Mac OS), they simply don't handle these type of files correctly. To split your file, download Fostex's free BWF Manager or Sound Device's Wave Agent.

BWF Manager Software - Broadcast, Film and Pro Audio
Wave Agent | Sound Devices, LLC

This will allow you to expand the poly file into mono files for each channel. Then you can take those mono files and import them into your DAW.

Good Luck.

Wayne

I'm using FCS v 6.0.5 and the multi-track BWF files work just fine. What sort of difficulties are you experiencing?
