MPEG-2 Video Linear PCM Timecode no longer working in FCP7

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

I edit daily with Final Cut Pro 7.0.3 on my MacBook Pro. I have several projects in which I imported files from an MR HD-100 hard drive. Not only did I successfully edit several projects, but I could open the individual files in QuickTime. They are 1280 x 720 MPEG-2 Video, Linear PCM, Timecode HD (1-1-1) files. Now suddenly they will not open. All I get is a white screen in Final Cut. Even the old finished projects I open in Final Cut show a white screen where this footage used to be. When I try to open one of the files in QuickTime I get the message, "An invalid public movie atom was found in the movie." I have not needed any type of conversion to make these files compatible before. They just worked. Any ideas as to why they suddenly won't work now?

I finally had time yesterday and today to tackle this problem. I read the link you sent and jedi knights had the solution if you had access to a mac still running 10.6.7 which I did not. So.....I bought a 32gb flash, intalled osx 10.6.3 from my disc, reinsalled QT7, did the 10.6.7 update, installed FCP7 so the codecs would load into QT and then transferred the one file (System/Library/QuickTimeComponents.component/Contents/MacOS/QuickTime Components) onto my laptop. ALL IS NOW RIGHT WITH THE WORLD!
Thank you for your help.
