Hello Canon gurus, I had an incident in which part of my data was corrupted (lost) on import. The XF 300 Folder structure came through without the index.mif or the journal, so the XF utility did not recognise the folder. Not sure where or when it happened, but even my Camera did not recognize the media CF card when I returned it to the slot, so I suspect the USB port? Anyways, the question is, is there any way to open and copy from an existing file/open/ modify these .mif or journal files so that the XF Utility can still read/join the video files? These are sports videos, and they need to be continuous. Work around at the moment is laboriously time consuming. Affraid it may happen again. I don't even know what program opens/edits these files... if there is one.

Can you view the video in your camcorder? Did you format your card before using it?
Have you tried inserting your card to computer card reader to be fixed by computer? ( not to format -video will be erased ).
Try third party video editor if you can upload it. ( free video editors like videopad, wondershare, see online free video editors ).

One way is to convert .mxf files into .avi or .mov files. See youtube video for tutorials.
The other way is double clicking the video and let windows give options what to do with this file.
Maybe it is not the USB is at fault but the XF Utility software that hide/convert the file.
index.mif file extension is a container that will let windows determine how to open or play by its media player.
