catalyst browse--.smi files?

My producers Mac laptop can no longer open the Sony Content Browser software, soo after several failed attempts to reload it (as prompted), we downloaded Catalyst Browse. We use these programs solely to make a back up copy of the SxS and XQD cards we shoot in the field from a pair of F3 cameras.

I'm noticiing that on a few longer clips, the copied files show a little chain icon and are displayed as .SMI files in the media window, instead of MP4.

Catalyst copies the .SMI just fine, but doesn't really like to play it back without a bit of stutter here and there.

The card plays fine in the camera. Is this just a hiccup in the Catalyst system, or if we ever need to retrieve one of these .SMI files from the backup drive, are we going to have a big problem?


Thx!
