~S~ Little info and question. I bought a camcorder that records in a avchd format. Bottom line. the disc will not play unless it is in a hd or bluray player. I have looked for programs that will let my system play it. If it was in a file or it had a firewire i think i would be ok but it does not. I have to use the disc. I want to take my kids judo turnys andput al this 22 min discs on 1 dvd, save them in a reagular format and send to grandparents that dont one a blueray ect. When i put in the disc it says window does not reconize the file. I have tred different programs but nothing seems to work. Will this allow my dvd rom to read and play this format? I even tried a program that cost over 100 and it did not work. these kids at circuit city and best buy can answer anything.
