Today , in this article we will talk about how to convert Sony HDR-XR260V AVCHD MTS/M2TS to AIC MOV for iMovie with the best iMovie Mac MTS Converter. Below is an issue form a Sony HDR-XR260V user.
I have a Mac Book Pro with Snow Leopard and iMovie '11. I have a few camcorders that when I hook up to my MacBookPro and open up iMovie, no problem, the gear is recognized and I am immediately prompted to import video, but I have a new Sony HDR XR260V that is not recognized. The Mac recognizes that there is something plugged in because it labels it, "No Name" and when I unplug it, it warns to go to Applications and eject the camera first...BUT the AVCDH video file folder contents are grayed out and not import-able.... Is there any simple solution?
