It either had something to do with the AVCHD format or compatibility with Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. I tried and tried, looked up numerous references online and came up short.

    The problem I had was everytime I went to edit with CS4 the video would not play back properly on the timeline and was very choppy, then after x seconds, the audio would just disappear.

    Huge reason I got out of the business.

    One of my earlier attempts to convert a short clip (a shootout goal our goalie's father wanted to have a copy of) resulted in a file with audio and no video. I tried about a half-dozen apps I downloaded. Most of them would only let me convert half the clip; I finally found one that worked well enough, but left a small watermark in the middle. The s/w that came with the camera was not useful at all. I guess I should try reading the manual.

    As simple as it is, Windows Movie Maker was able to open and edit a few clips I took from that camera.

    I have heard good things about Sony Vegas too.

    Windows Movie Maker can't handle .mov files though...

    I use Sony Vegas, but it's not a free app.

    You may want to simply convert the .mov file to something Windows Movie Maker can handle. WMM is very simple but does a good job if you just want to throw together something quick.

    Any Video Converter is good, and free:

    I don't even have Movie Maker (it's my work laptop). I can't believe how much unnecessary crap they left in while managing to not include WMM. Makes you wonder how much more crap there was that they removed.

    I think you can download WMM for free?

    Yeah, it typically comes with the OS.

    Typically, yes, but I guess the IT department removed it for some reason.

    That link doesn't work for me -- I'm running XP and I'm guessing that one is for something more modern.

    Any-video Converter will do simply editing like trimming, so I shouldn't even need WMM.

    Ah, cool. I've only used it to convert. I do all my editing in Sony Vegas (or WMM if I just want to make something quick 'n dirty for FBook or YouTube).
