Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7

Just purchase the Lumix DMC-ZS7 Digital Camera which I love as it has great options and is fun to use and picture and video quality is great.
I can download the pic's directly to my iMac using iPhoto as I always did with other cameras and that works fine.
Video recorded in AVCHD lite in SH quality.
Problem: Video downloads into iMovie `08 fine and coverts the files from an .mts to a .mov format but when I play the videos they play too fast (I guessing 2X) video and sound however the video plays fine on the camera. Quality is great and I still have the video on the card as this was my first trip to Disney with my kids (very important footage) which I cannot afford to lose.
I have googled the problem but really never found an answer but have tried the following:
1) Ran the video on the latest version of VLC same problem.
2) Downloaded the files directly to my external hard drive from camera and tried to open them, but no program I have would open the .mts format.
3) Going to try to download with a card reader directly to my external hard drive this time, but I think I will get the same results.
I am a novice at video on the iMac and any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am willing to update to iLife `09 for the latest software, but only if I know this will definitely solve this problem.
