i imported 15 mxf clips (001118.MXF, 00DBG55.MXF...etc...) and once in the bin there ARE 15 files but many have the smae name (001118.MXF, 001118.MXF, 001118.MXF)
e.g. i have 7 --- 0001KL.MXF in the bin
Those are spanned clips; just import one instance of them, and they'll all come along for the ride. Premiere can figure out which media files belong to which master clip, and stitch them together for you, so you can use them as one piece of footage.
