    Cant load videos to my Mac from GH1

    Looking for some direction. I am not able to load videos I took today using my GH1 to my Mac or iPad. I recently upgraded the GH1 to the latest firmware. Not sure how I should have the folders organized on the SD card either and whether the way the folders are organized affects the ability to transfer files. I can view the videos from the camera. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Your SD card should have a structure:

    /PRIVATE/AVCHD/BDMV/STREAM

    2. In STREAM are MTS files

    3. On Mac you need to convert them to .MOV (can be tricky)

    Some bits maybe here:

    You should understand this:

    Hope it gets you started.

    I think you can play those files on a Mac via VLC Media player (as it supports H.264 video and AC3 audio directly without DirectShow filters)

    Try VLC and you will be happy.

    The latest version of VLC plays the mts files perfectly.

    iMovie 9 or Final Cut Pro/Express can read the AVCHD .MTS files on Apple Intel-based systems. So can VLC.

    Good news. The new version 1.1.3 worked fine. I used 1.0.3 when the GH1 came out and it was bad.
