Clip 00017.MTS is being read as having the same footage as clip 00016.MTS. I also noticed that this was happening with 2 other files. I then switched the view to read as AVCHD. At that point Media browser wasn't reading the 3 clips at all.
This is normal for spanned clips. The Media Browser will only show you the first file of a spanned clip. So it looks as though 16 and 17 were incorrectly imported the first time around, and now you're having an issue.
This is why it's recommenced you always copy the entire card for solid state media, leave it's contents unchanged, and always use the Media Browser for import.
When transferring these files from the card I copied everthing over. I then (at the time) used Media Browser viewing them as AVCHD to import them which is why I don't understand why it is not recogignizing them now.
How do I resolve the spanned clip issue?
If the Media Browser isn't showing you 17 when viewed as AVCHD, that is pretty strong evidence that 17 is actually the second half of file 16, that they were recorded as one long clip that got split into two separate files. If that's true, then you only got clip 17 in the project because you didn't use Media Browser for import the first time around (or didn't have it set to show AVCHD).
The fix would be a reedit where those clips are concerned.
Ok, Jim, thank you for the info.
