Fail to Import MXF Files into Premiere Pro CC 2015, Solved!

Can't import MXF files into Premiere Pro CC 2015

After upgrading Adobe Premiere Pro to its its newest version Premiere Pro CC 2015, many people encounter problems when loading MXF file into Premiere Pro CC 2015 as below:

1. Hi There, I have just downloaded the new update for Premiere CC2015 from 2014 and now I can't import anything containing my MXF files from the Canon XF305. I have tried importing through the media browser and also from FILE. Does anyone have any idea? Many thanks.

2. Premiere Pro 2015 crashes when importing .mxf from C300...anyone else experience this?
Workaround for now: drag all .MXF files into a folder without the associated meta data files.
