Transfer of MTS files

Have you tried just copying or moving the files across? The supplied software is nice to have but not essential, the files have a "global" format that should be recognised by any decent video editor.

May I make a suggestion. VideoStudio Pro X6 (as well as some others) has a free trial download which lasts 30 days. Why don't you copy the files to a folder on your HD and try to load them into one of the "free" editors?
