I have read the manual countless times already but..
Seems like the manual has everything except answer my problem
It did say that I should expect the files to be read me only seeing that it came from the SD card but would that make a difference if I used a cable to connect my cam and my laptop instead? This just occurred to me if that might work better
Can you give me a step by step on how to do this? "If your video editor can't import correctly from the files that were copied to the computer, then use a transcoder like MPEG Streamclip from www.squared5.com, convert the files to a format that your video editor prefers... This should address you Question 3."
Please bear with me for I suck at this and I am new
