And Knowing is Half the Battle

Where are the video files? The camera creates video files with an “.MTS” extension.

  • .MTS files are located (deep inside) the “PRIVATE” folder on the memory card. Copy/Backup the entire “PRIVATE” folder to your computer or hard drive. Once copied you can reformat the memory card for the next student.
    • PRIVATE folder
      • AVCHD folder
        • BDMV folder
          • STREAM folder (where .MTS files are located)
  • To import videos file into a editing program, simply select or drag the “PRIVATE” folder into the program’s media library-that should do the trick


The camera is not “numbering off”?

  • Someone hit the “TC/U-BIT” button.
    • Now all you have to do is, find that button.


Is the LCD screen is stiff?

  • loosen the “LCD HOLD” dial.
