Default MXF Files in Edius

I've just recently bought a Sony XDCAM camera. I shot some footage in the XAVC format and imported it through Edius Source Browser. I exported it as an AAF file for sync using Plural Eyes 3.51, but PE said it was an 'Unsupported Format'. On closer look it seems that the file imported into Edius is an XML file, eg. Clip0118M01.XML. In the 'Transferred' folder on my hard drive it shows 2 file types - .xml and .mxf - how do I get just mxf file to show in Edius (without having to re-import it) ?? The reason I ask this is because the mxf files will work in PluralEyes, but not the xml ones. I could just drag all the mxf files into Edius from the hard drive, but I'm also trying to save time as I thought I could import files directly into Edius using the Source Browser and start working with them.

is your camera file format set to Fat32?

if yes, you don't need source browser because clips are not split in the camera at 4GB, so just copy the actual clip files only using Win Explorer to EDIUS project folder (I make a sub folder called HD Clips and copy from card to that folder at 110MB/s using Sony USB3 card reader)

I don't use Plural Eyes and regularly do multicams with 8-16 camera tracks.
I always use the MXF files copied from the XQD Card, formatted in exFat. In 7 the option existed to import both XML and MXF to the bin. I had a theory that I got Whitescreen crashes when I used XML and I initially used them out of sheer ignorance, having used P2 XMLs, so now I only use MXF.
In 8 the XML option to import them to the bin is not there, although as you say Source browser will.

Not sure how far down the road on the project you are but you could be stuffed!
You could try replacing the XML with the MXF using SHFT R, hopefully it will import at the correct timecode.
Certainly on an exFat card there should be no file splitting (except start/stop) so no need for XML.

I've only just started the project so no worries there. I'll just start again. Thanks for your help.
