Question about Canon VIXIA HF10 HDV Camcorder

5 Answers

HF10 camcorder cannot read some .mts files

I recently recorded 240 clips (<2hrs@FXP) on a 16GB SDHC class 6 card (Transcend). The HF10 camcorder can only find the most recent 90 clips (~59 min in ~8GB). Both ImageMixer3 SE and iMovie will only download the files that the HF10 recognizes. Using a card reader, all 240 .mts files are present on the card and have appropriate file sizes. Canon support blames the card. iMovie doesn't like .mts files even if I rename them .m2ts. Any suggestions about recovering the HF10 unreadable files would be welcome.

My knowledge in video editing is limited, but here's what I could dig up.

m2ts is also referred to as AVCHD, (MPEG4) a high-def Interlaced format which most computers cant render properly since most computers render in progressive format. You have to convert it to MPEG2, AVI, WMV, MOV or other movie file types in Progressive mode, a process known as "Deinterlacing" in order to edit it. Depending on how big the file is and how fast your computer is this could take several hours. Also, you cant view AVCHD files on normal televisions, you need a high-def TV.

If you want to edit high-def videos with post-effects and music etc, for dvd or blue-ray, you'll need a more powerful computer. The "recommended" minimum is a 64bit dual core processor, windows vista 64 bit, a seperate 500Gb or bigger hard drive and at minimum, 3-4Gbs of RAM with a high-def TV monitor. (1080i) Rendering High-Def videos is process heavy and can take up to 12+ hours to render a single 30-60 minute video with post-fx like music, logo's etc. The reason you need a 64bit processor and 64bit windows is because regular XP and Vista wont recognize more than 3Gb of RAM.

You could get by with a 32bit dual core processor and 2 gigs of RAM on windows XP, it's just going to be slower. You will still probably need a high def monitor if your going to edit in high-def mode.

High-def is new technology to mainstream consumers. Supporting technology hasnt caught up yet including most software--however most of what I read stated that Sony Vegas Platinum can do this pretty well.

Your camera is capeable of recording in progressive mode. You'll have to read the manual on how to do this. This will record it in standard mode which is not high-def. (For future reference)

To sum it all up, the camera's technology is more advanced than most PCs. I downloaded AVS Video Converter and converted the AVCHD, (MPEG4) a high-def Interlaced format to HD Video 720p: WMV9, 7000 kbps....... on the drop down screen of the AVS program. I now can view my videos in Progressive Standard mode with NO choppy play back or problems. Please note that 720p is a non digital standard Television view.

Remember M2ts files need to be converted to Progressive non HD files so your computer can read them. That will stop the choppy skips.

Hope this helps.

Here are two things to try.

I had a problem with ImageMixer3 SE not recognizing all files. Turned out I had to use the USB port on the back of my desktop computer (motherboard) not the front USB port. There is some sort of front USB hub problem. Second you can try to update the ImageMixer3 SE software.

Canon Legria HF200 SDHC Initialization problem


This totally sucks. I have a similar issue with my Canon Vixia HF R20 and I'm using a Lexar Pro 64Gb 133x SDXC card. When trying to initialize the card, its fails and says "Process terminated with error." It also says "check the memory card" when I first put it in. Write-protect is off. My other SanDisk class 4 SDHC card seems to work ok.
I could have sworn it worked before and I was able to transfer videos to my Mac on 10.6, but I can't remember for sure if I was using the SDXC card or just the built-in memory. Very frustrating.

I have a brand new JVC GZ-MS100 and a brand new card


The 32GB SDHC card may be a "class 4" card, not a "Class 6".

Look at the card and find the circle with a number in it.
Class 6 is the highest speed available. Class 4 is much slower and can't keep up with video.

Not all 32GB sdhc cards work with all camcorders.

Try formatting the card twice in the JVC.
