Use it on some of your old TM700 footage. You can convert to virtually any format. They have a free demo that will put a little watermark on your video, but I've tried it to convert video for use with Media Composer 5, and it worked fine. It's only $30.
Remember, .mts is merely a "container". You should be able to easily convert it to many different formats, and retain 59.94 frames per second(you will need to use the custom menu for that).
However, CS3 may be to old to handle even the converted video's, unless you cut them down to 29.97 frames per second. Which kind of defeats the purpose of shooting in 60P in the first place.
