Default *URGENT* need help with re linking OMF files in a pro tools session

Gday everyone. Have had a job come my way for a 5.1 mix and i'm having massive issues with the clients pro tools session they gave me. For starters it looks like more than one OMF has been imported into the session, which correct me if i'm wrong is odd? After days of trying to get all the files off them I seem to finally have them all. Now my problem is that again correct me if i'm wrong but the OMF file(s) seem to be broken up into over 200 small files like ABC.omf ABC.1.omf ABC.2.omf ABC.3.omf etc etc.... Which i have never come across this seems odd? should it not be one big file like i'm used to? I seem to have all these files however pro tools will not re link them (see attach pic) I let pro tools scan the folder finding links by name, however it does not seem to recognize these files?

Am i going mad here and missing something?

Would love any help in this matter cheers guys

It could be an awful lot of things. If at all possible, I'd see if you can get the client to re-export, but this time to Save Copy As.

Manged to fix it. Seems one single OMF file was not in the correct folder for so pro tools could not build the whole OMF file unless they were all in the same folder.
