If you have one of these large files on PC A, you can copy the file to your NAS, right? Can you copy that file from the NAS or server to a local disk on PC B? Can you then import this file into PR on machine B?
Yes you can copy if back from the NAS but it will still give you that message. Unsupported or Damaged File.

Are you saying that using copy in Explorer to transfer the file from PC A via the NAS to PC B works, but when importing the file from the local disk on PC B it gives you the error message?
If this is the case, there are 2 possibilities that need investigating.
1. The copy using Explorer corrupted the file, or
2. There may be a codec problem with the PR installation on PC B. A codec missing maybe. You can use GSpot to find if any codecs on machine A are missing or corrupted on machine B.
If possibility 1 may be the case, you can try with a removable disk from A to B, bypassing the NAS or server. Just copy the file from A to the removable disk, go to PC B, attach the removable disk and then try importing. Make sure that the disk letter is the same on all machines by using Disk Management and assigning a specific drive letter.
AJA XENA LHe capture card
The AJA card may need to be installed on all the machines, not just the capture machines.
Thanks for the help it is working now. I didnt know about Gspot codec detector before, the codecs were not installed on any of the machines that is why i tried installing the plugins from the xena drivers. Adobe can now import the files, which was my original problem but now it isn't playing back right within adobe premiere. Everything is extremely pixelated. Any Ideas? The only difference i see now is that the capture machines actually have the capture cards and these editing machines don't. The codecs and drivers installed are the same on all now.
