Thanks again!
I always use PlayMemory when importing from a small HD handycam and it perfectly splices the clip segments together.
I never used with X70 simply 'cause I record XAVC but I'm pretty sure it can easily manage X70' AVCHD.
Both windows and Mac version are available for free

John, I am using Premiere Pro CC2015. As the newest version, I'd like to think Adobe would have picked up on this issue, but the files were split when I imported them. When you mention "keeping the file structure intact," what do you mean? I don't do anything with the folders, but I do copy the files to my desktop. That may be the problem, and if it is, what are the instructions to do it properly. Many thanks! ~TRW

Re: Anyone Transfer X70 Clips to External HD?

So there should be a Sony folder with a SONYCARD.IND in it - not sure if this folder is really necessary but there should also be an AVCHD folder
The structure should look like:
AVCHD--BDMV--CLIPINF
--PLAYLIST
--STREAM -------------movie files (.mts/.mov depending on camera)
--INDEX.BDM
--MOVIEOBJ.BDM

You just point PP to the AVCHD folder and it drills down and finds the clips for you and it should stitch them together. You do that in the Media Browser pane. You can also import but you must import the AVCHD folder and not the individual clips.

All the other software including PlayMemories / Sony Content Browser and Sony Catalyst Browse use this file structure to correctly read the files. Play Memories is more designed for grabbing media directly from the card/camera and storing it as media files. The other two are available for free via a search engine.

John, your suggestion works! The Media Browser is the key to bringing in the clips "stitched" together. Browsing around, I also located the answer on the Premiere Pro help/support site...here it is, for others who may find themselves dealing with the same issue:

Thanks again, everyone...DVINFO rocks!
