Let me begin by saying the $50.00 I am referring to is the price to purchase a video converter program. I purchased my Roxio NXT 5 on the Roxio site for the normal upgrade price.
I have done searches for Freemake, but when I down load it, my Norton Security tells me not to download the program, so I am not comfortable with it.
I sent an email to Roxio support and asked them why they sell an upgraded program with less functionality. Their answer was, no NXT 5 does not have the capability to convert .mts video, and,
Thank you for contacting Corel Technical Support.
Sorry for the trouble, MTS is not supported on NXT 5. I also have no idea why this was removed. Once again, sorry for the trouble.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any further questions.

I ended up downloading Microsoft Essentials 2012, a FREE program, which includes Movie Maker. Movie Maker has the capability to convert .mts video to .mp4 video, which worked fine.
This brings me back to the question I asked Corel Technical Support, why does Roxio sell an updated program that has less capability than the previous versions? I know you don't have an answer for this, neither does Roxio. I'm not ranting at anyone, just stating a fact. I appreciate everyone's effort in trying to help me resolve this issue.
