Help! Can't access DVCPRO HD clips!

Hi folks, I'm currently doing an edit where I have to incorporate footage I've gotten from an unknown source. I've tried everything to access these clips but none of the software I have will recognize the format. Analyzing the footage with MediaInfo tells me that its DVCPRO HD, but that doesn't help me much.

I'm using a PC and Sony Vegas Pro 10 to make the edits. I also have Premiere Pro CS5 and Media Encoder CS5 but none of these editors will accept the format. Do I need a particular codec? If so then which? And where would I find it? I just need to transcode this to a format which I can use. I need to do this urgently so any help would be most welcome.

This is what MediaInfo says about the clips:

Bit rate : 107 Mbps

Scan type : Interlaced
Compression mode : Lossy
Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 2.593
Stream size : 842 MiB (93%)

MC5 and PP5 should both support DVCproHD... I edit DVCproHD from my HPX171 all the time with out any problem (with MC5). In what container are the files? MXF, MOV?

Re: Help! Can't access DVCPRO HD clips!

the clips are MXF. Yes they should be recognized by the software I have. Do you think the clips could possibly have been corrupted somehow? Just a theory.

Sony Vegas doesn't edit DVCPRO HD natively. You have to purchase Raylight.

Raylight by DVFilm - Edit HVX200 DVCPROHD with Vegas or Premiere

You say the clips are in MXF so that would suggest that they are in the original state. So I doubt that there's something wrong with the clips it self... But who knows...
