Default Strange result with HQX conversion

After converting MXF files from my camera ( Sony X70 ) I become three files : AVCHD + AVI + XML files.
This used to be one file = HQX.
Probably some setting,but at the moment it's a problem and a mystery for me..
Any help is more than welkom.

you are converting MXF files to what? do you select HQ Avi?

why are you converting the MXF files, they work perfect in EDIUS without converting

Converting to HQX files.
It gives a better and smoother playback on my system.
I did this with my previous camera and there was a big difference with converting.
With the Sony there is also a difference bud not that significant.
The files are 3 to 4 times bigger,uncompressed.
Like I wrote,before the new motherboard / CPU,I got a single file HQX after converting,and now three different ?
So I think there are some setting to be adjusted,bud I'm in the dark at the moment.
Everything works,so no problem bud I find it rare.
Thanks for Your'e respons.
Edd

How are you converting the clips to HQX?

Don't know if Edius uses quick sync to decode MXF on the timeline but if it does you should make sure quick sync is working as I had severe problems with playback of MTS files on the Edius timeline before I activated quick sync on my system.

Quick sync is running and playback is no problem.
I copy my cards to a directory,witch I call : card 1;2 and so on,then I go to the Bin and open a dir. and Edius register the clips in to the the root ; Card 1 ; a.s.o.
I then select the files in the Bin and right click => convert , batch and place them in an different directory witch I call **HQX.
It's the same camera and I reuse the cards,the first time I didn't copy the *.xml files and had no rec. date,so I copy these files in the same directory and now there are the different files,the AVCHD file have the :rec.date
I do it this way from the first Edius ( 3 ) and never had this before.
The hard and software are up to date.
I did installed the Grass valley codecs + HQX/HQ and the playback codecs.
Everything works and I can work on this project,but I never had it this way.
It's a bit annoying there are three files ( the same ) and one with the date.
I dont convert the files no more,but the phenomena still stays.
Before I had a total new installation I never had this,so I think this is a setting "problem".
Thx for thinking with me.
Edd

you must not install the Grass Valley codec pack on a PC that has EDIUS installed
