    It would appear that this issue isn't solely limited to MACs. The AVCHD format is relatively new and one backed by Sony (surprise, surprise). I wouldn't want to be a guineapig for such a new format, and would advise that you look at alternative camcorders; Sny has a bad track record of chosing proprietary formats which don't gain wide spread support.

    For movie file conversion from Sony AVCHD format to MPEG-2 HDV and MPEG-2 DVD compatible formats you can use Elecard Converter Studio AVCHD Edition.
