Adobe Premiere CS5

I am using Premiere CS5 to edit vidoe shot with a Sony XDCam EX PMW-EX1 HD camera.  

Everything was working great, until I had to reformat my MAC.  No, it appears I am missing a CODEC that I use to have, but have no idea which one it was or where I got it.

When I open an existing project, it tells me that the media is Offline.  When I try to import new footage, it tells me that the codec is missing or unavailable.

In addition to now knowing if I am installing the correct Codec, I also am not certain if I am installing them correctly

I have already installed the following Codec packages.

Zygo 2.0 Video, 1.0 Audio
Perian 1.21
x264 QT

How can I find the codec that I need and make sure it is installed correctly?
