I have a ton of MTS files I took off my friends camera, and iMovie won't read them. When i try importing them, they are grayed out and I cannot select them. My Macbook doesn't even recognize them. The reason I have nothing but the files is because when trying to import them using my friend's Canon camera, my computer didn't recognize the camera, so I couldn't import directly from camera into iMovie. Instead, i went into the hard drive and pulled the files directly onto the macbook's HD. I figured I'd be able to convert the files into dv or some other recognizable format but everytime I try the files come out corrupted in some way. I am now relegated to trying to import the files into iMovie again. Every thread I read says that iMovie should be able to read AVCHD, but it's not. On top of trying to convert the files, I have tried mounting them onto a disk image I created, but iMovie didn't recognize them either. TL;DR: My Macbook didn't recognize my friend's camera, so I wasn't able to import files directly into iMovie. I have tried tricking iMovie into recognizing the files but it hasn't worked. Help!
