    Yes I am here - note that this is email support, not real time conversation. You can Press F5 to refresh this page to check if I have responded.

    I'll post you another message in a minute, im just posting this now so you know im here.


  • Ekse Oct 09, 2010

    What do you see in the partition page? when you select the drive. Also do you have any other macs nearby to test if you get the same results there aswell.

  • Ekse Oct 09, 2010

    it seems to me like you would have to erase the drive if there is noting in the partitions, if you have very important content on the drive you should take it to professional data recovery service locally.

    as if the partition is gone entirely, veryfing disc permissions or similar won't help, veryfy disc or repair disk might help, maybe try on another computer if it doesn't let you do it on this one.

  • Ekse Oct 09, 2010

    Yes ofcourse, just return to this page tomorrow or the day after. This stays open for 7 days from your last comment unless you accept the solution at which point it closes then and there.

    Posting another comment keeps it open for another 7 days from that day.

  • Ekse Oct 09, 2010

    There probably are programs, that probably cost something that might be able to help. But right now I don't know of one made for a mac and haven't used one on a mac before.

Import MTS to Final Cut Pro X-Convert Sony PJ30V 60p MTS to H.264 MOV for...


The Sony PJ30V has more compression options than your average camcorder. Most of its video is recorded using AVCHD compression, which is today's industry standard. The HDR-PJ30V has 32GB of internal flash memory and it can record Full HD video using 60p, 60i, or 24p frame rates. The PJ30V comes with the same version of Picture Motion Browser (PMB) software that shipped with the Sony HDR-CX700V, which we reviewed earlier this year. The new version of the software is nearly identical to previous versions of PMB, except version 5.5 does allow you to import and work with 60p and 24p clips (something that is essential for the HDR-PJ30V). One big downside, we noticed in terms of editing, is that the 60p clips recorded by the PJ30V don't always play nice with mac editing software. Final Cut Pro version 5.0, for example. And Now <b>Final Cut Pro X</b> is available could be Downloaded from the Mac App Store. However <b>Log and Transfer was removed</b> in the X version of Final Cut.
