I am a bit curious, when you said cam's flash memory is read only, why if you used the menu "COPY" inside the camcorder, you can transfer files vv flash to SD or SD to flash?
Maybe it is "read only" when you use PC to access it. But if you edit/copy/delete using the camcorder, it will not be a problem.
What is most important point that I believe two of us will certainly agree upon is - it doesn't matter how you back up your files (manually or with HD Writer AE) - you can do whatever you want with these files later on, including sending back to camcorder, playing back from it, etc. Sometimes one way will be faster, sometimes it will be the other.. I'm ok with both
Yup I am totally agreed with you. Either way it should work.

So then there's no need to keep anything except for one 1080p video file then. A lot of posts were earlier talking about keeping mts files for playing back through camcorder. If either will work then the only duplicate needed would be a conversion of 1080i if you want to put on a bluray.
Yup, you only need to keep 1 set of 1080p MTS files (using windows explorer copy and paste) or
to keep 1 set of 1080p M2TS files (using HD writer).
To keep 1 set of M2TS files using HD writer:
First of all, connect PC to Cams using USB, then you just transfer 1080p60 clips to your PC using HD writer by selecting "COPY TO PC".
For each clip, HD writer will create 1 set of files *.M2TS file and 3 other files in your PC
(*.cont, *.pmpd, *.tmb.).
Keep safely those 4 files. Later you will need that 1 set of files
to be able to put the M2TS back to camcorder.
After that, disconnect USB, then you can delete original video file in your camcorder.Later on if you want to do AVCHD/1080i conversion
, just connect your camcorder to your PC using USB, and use HD writer as a software
to do the conversion :
1. clicking HD writer on your PC,
2. select Tools - Movie - Format conversion, select 1080p to AVCHD or AVCHD to SD
3. select the clips to convert
4. select to convert in same folder or different folder and don't forget to click "setting"
at the bottom in order to select HD writer to use camcorder as a hardware
to do the task by selecting an option called " Use the conversion assist function of the video camera" (converting in this way is much..much...faster)
Hope you understand my english. It is a bit hard to explain it.
Also I want to clarify my statement :
Once you transfer you files back from PC to SD card using HD writer, the M2TS file already change back to MTS file and you can play it back as it is an original 1080p60 file.
So there is no actual need to transfer it back to cam's flash memory for playback. But if you prefer to play it back in the flash memory, you also have an option using camcorder "COPY" menu.
