Great forum, thank you all for your information...
I am having a problem with my SR7. I had a computer crash, so I copied (and then deleted) the files from the SR7 hard drive to another computer to make space on the camera. Then I finally rebuilt my computer and then reinstalled the Picture Motion Browser software (with update). When I try importing all the new videos from the camera to PMB, it only shows place holders for all the videos, including what I have copied off the camera before, and will not process the import. Am I forever stuck in having to physically move the video files from the camera to the computer? When copied directly they are in the format .MTS. When imported using PMB they are in the format .M2TS.
Any suggestions? These formats are so difficult to work with.
