Default EX1 files & Edius 5

I have just upgraded to Edius v5, and am just starting to edit in HD. The footage was shot with a Sony EX1, which places each scene in a new folder, which contain 5 files, an MP4, SMI, XML, PPN and BMI.
Questions

1. Edius 5 sees the MP4, SMI and XML as clip files. Which ones do I import into Edius to do my editing? (using any one of the 3 shows a clip on the time line.)

2. How do I add to the bin the contents of several folders? Highliting a group only selects the last folder. Opening each folder seperately cannot be right, as for my 300+ folders this would be a nightmare.

3. In the export process (now that Procoder for Edius is no longer included), what option do I choose for HD output to Blu ray?

Hoping that someone may be able to help me with these questions.

Are you using the Sony software, and then dragging dropping into the EDIUS bin?

I used the Sony Software to place the files on a hard drive (videoed scenes overseas, then stored the files on a laptop for use when I got home). I am now trying to put these files in the Edius 5 Bin.

Default ex1 import problems

2008 link is now dead at the GV site.

I am trying to find out why any video segments with multiple mp4 files, fails to import into the Edius bin from the Sony ex1 interface. This has been the case for over a year now. If the clip is a single 4 minute or less file it works fine.
