If memory serves, you won't be able to edit that on a PC. Unless someone else has other information, you may have to contact the client and get different copies. (I recommend not using QuickTime. It's a good way to ensure broad compatibility.)
You can try. My memory isn't perfect, but I thought this was something that would only work on Macs.
Can you convert them in vdub?

I have never used VirtualDub.
Have you used it to convert odd codec QT files before?
No, but i thought it might be worth a try. Vdub can cope with a fair range of sources, but I suppose if you do not have the codec, it would be no-go.
Ok... XviD4PSP Converter does in fact recognize these QT xd5f files.
I'm experimenting now to determine the best format / settings
for transcoding the quicktime files into something editable
while at the same time retaining the maximum possible quality.
If anyone who has direct experience with XviD4PSP Converter
can sugget any preferred method, it would be appreciated.
This media was recorded using a Convergent Design NanoFlash.
connected to the HD-SDI output from a Sony HDCam F-900R
The device records MXF, MPEG or QT files.
I have edited the .MXF files from this device without any problems.

I've used the Calibrated plugin. It does what it says -- adds a QT codec for some 'pro' .mov compressions. Try it yourself -- you can download their stuff and try it in "demo mode"; you can import the files it supports into Premiere (or AE or whatever). Demo mode does put a big ugly watermark on the video until you pay up.
PS I believe PPro CC can open xd5f compressed .mov files. I'm not immediately finding an xd5f .mov sample file, but if someone points me at one I will confirm.
Thanks for the info on the plugin... I may have to resort to buying it.
I'm trying to get out with a no-cost option first.

Moot point for me.
