I connected the camera and opened the files on the hard drive. The file tree take mes to AVCHD/BDMV/STREAM/(clip number).mts. I copied the .mts files of the clips that wouldn't transfer. They showed up in the "insert video/photo" option but has a cirlce with red slash. It shows a 20 mb file but won't preview. When I double click, I am told I need to convert the file. I do this but now it shows a 36 byte file but will not preview.
Just to compare, I copied one of the other files and it needed to be converted before it would preview. The conversion showed the same size as the original and it would preview just fine.
1. Am I copying from the right directory? ( I don't see any other file that has video clips)
2. Any idea what would prevent the clip from playing? Once again, it plays fine on the camera and will play fine in the import files list but I cannot get a working copy of the file onto the computer.
I loaded a trial version of Sony Vegas and the clips imported and worked fine. I have used Creator 2009 since last July and find it to be a little buggy (clips won't import, videowave 11 quits working, error messages while rendering video).
