Two camcorders, A Re-Conditioned Canon LEGRIA HF M306 bought 6 mths ago and a 'Returned to Shop' JVC GZ-HM30SEK 2 mths old.
Both record in AVCHD. The software that came with both of them is Pixela ImageMixer.
I thought just loading the Canon version on the computer, I would be able to download and view the files from the camcorders.
But the program will not recognise the JVC files, although I'm told AVCHD is the 'New Standard' for recording ?

Is it a Standard 'Standard' or a Standard to each individual Company ?

The problem is, the Canon version of ImageMaker Ver 6 has a tendency to freeze, and I was hoping the JVC one would be more stable,
but that either comes on and then disappears or when it does come on it will not read the Canon files
