A friend of mine wants me to copy the video files from his Canon HF R50 video camera to a DVD for him. I can't seem to get the mac to recognize the camera at all except that it pops out Photos and tries to import the files. Apparently "Import" means convert the AVCHD files to some other format that Apple likes better and hide the files within the Photos database. Is there some way to copy the native files from the camera to my hard drive without modifying them? I also don't want them in any sort of photo library, I just want the files. Thanks.
