Different Video Files Interpreted as Same File

I've been shooting on a c300, which splits video files into two when the file exceeds 4gb.  When I import those split files Premiere interprets those two as the same video.  I've found a long work around involving competely relocating and re-importing the files on a new project, but this is extremely inconvenient.  I was wondering if anyone has had this problem before and have found a better solution.

This is a new problem for me, I've never encountered this before.  I also thought it might be useful to note that I can tell when this problem will occur during import when Premiere does not generate a new peak file for a new video.  Again, any help would be great.

Are you copying the entire contents of the card to the computer before importing into Premiere Pro?

use Premiere's media browser to maintain file structure while importing, and enable Write XMP ID to files on import. This essentially writes a serial number to each video or audio file on import. To my understanding this helps Premiere prevent the import of duplicate media, but it can also bloat your project files, so I'd test it in your workflow if it meets your needs.
