So I bought this Sony HDR-CX405 HandyCam and it's a great little camera, BUT, it records in MTS format and it's a bugger to get any of the programs I have installed on my computer to play that type of file. Suggestions please.

No help on the camera but,the cases these typically come in make great field bags. I have one that's stuffed with a camo shirt or rain jacket. It's used as a rr bag shooting off bi pod. Sorry for thread drift..... should be someone on here that knows a work around.

don't look at me you lost me at HDR.
but if I didn't get a response on the open Board I would PM Brad's brother.
you know that guy with the parrot for an avatar.

Look in the manual. Some of them allow you to change the format.
I haven’t had issues with mine downloading to the computer.
Like fiver said, PM my baby bro as this kind of stuff is what he does for a living. User name is Troj

Gary. Your camera is the same as mine. I have had no such issues. My brother does all of our editing using software called "Filmora"

Looks like ours record in MP4.That is how they came. Must be a way to switch it around???
