What model camera does the media come from?
We use Sony PDW-700 and PDW-800.
Is the Professional Disc structure still intact on your HDD?
Have you tried to ingest those MXF-files into Adobe Prelude, and from there sending them to Premiere Pro?
Which machine (PDW-U1, PDW-U2, PDW-HD1500, PDW-F1600, PDW-HR1) do you use to ingest the discs onto your HDD?
I don't have the entire folder structure from pro disc, but I can test this. Note that for XDCAM HD I don't need them as I do for XDCAM EX. I just need the MXF files from clip folder. At least they used to work fine this way on CS4, CS5 and CS5.5. We use PDW-U1 to copy the clips.
I'll do more tests with new clips and will let you know. Btw, are you able to work with XDCAM HD successfully on CS6?

You are right about the disc structure. You only need the MXF-files. My fault!
So for I have no problems with XDCAM HD422 footage in Premiere Pro CS6.
Most of the time I'm still using MPEG-HD420 @ 35 Mbps footage from a PDW-F355. I'm only having audio problems with it in Prelude, but that's not an XDCAM HD problem. With AVCHD I have this problem too.
Are you using Windows or a Mac?
Sorry the delay, I was forced to stop the tests for a while.
I'm using Windows 7.
Today I tested XDCAM HD420 footages from the PDW and everything went well. Same for IMX.
Then I started testing other HD 422 clips, and was able to import them. Looking into the metadata I figured out that some clips were actually reencoded using MainConcept plug-in; those clips I could not import. Then I installed Rovi Totalcode plug-in and was able to import them all.
That's the problem I need to seek solution now, as we have a two years old archive entirely encoded by MainConcept. But now I have an enlighted path before me.
Thanks for the help, Ivan.
