Thanks Mike, it is Vegas 8 Pro.

What I did was download the AVCHD from the camera direct to the HDD & then try to trnsfer these to Vegas. But when I select any of them it says it is an unsupported format. I then checked "properties" & it showed they were .mts files.

Hi Ron

If you have an early version of Vegas 8 it will recognise only Sony AVCHD files ...the problem was rectified in version 8b or c to be able to read Panasonic MTS files...I'm sure that only Panny use the MTS extension..Sony use M2TS. My Version 9 reads MTS without any issues but I have heard a lot of people unable to import Panasonic MTS files in 8 or 8a

Movie Studio 9 will read MTS but not the earlier Movie Studio versions

That's interesting Chris as this file is from my son's Sony camcorder, (HDR-SR12), and my AVCHD files are from my Canon HFS-10. There are no HD Panasonics in our kit. Oh, and yes I have vers. 8c.

Hi Ron

Maybe this is worth a try??? On the site for the Voltaic AVCHD transcoder, I found a whole bunch of raw AVCHD test files you can download from different cameras and I initially used these to find out whether my current Vegas would accept them.

However if it's not recognising Sony files then something is definately wrong!!! Maybe re-install Vegas???? Version 8C should accept ALL AVCHD files without any problems!!! It was only the Panasonic MTS that gave an issue!!

Thanks again Chris I'll check out that site, it looks interesting. - I guess this title still applies - "Driving me nuts " !

Why should this happen ? I can't ever imagine how you pro guys actually make any money out of this business. If my project was a pay job, with the amount of time I have spent over the last ten days I would be making about 20c an hour. - Of course to be fair, most of it was due to a new Samsung HDD. (I normally use Western Digital). but with all the problems that a lot of people have with AVCHD why did they let this loose on us before it worked properly ? Perhaps we are their beta testers.

Further, if codecs like Cineform work OK with AVCHD, how come similar codecs are not built in to the Vegas software in the first place ? From my electronic designing background we would not dare release a product until it was very thoroughly tested. Sadly now it is all very different.
