No way, CMX EDL disks were based on the DEC RT-11 file system. As dumb 
as DOS, but not the same. If you find an old Avid editing system it 
might still have a copy of the EDLxfer program I wrote for them back 
around 1990, which read raw CMX disks (3.5" at the time) and transferred 
the EDL files to Mac files. But then you'd need an old Mac with an 8" 
diskette drive...
