NEX 5 - Video files - What to copy?!
Dec 6, 2010

When opening an SD card from NEX 5, with videos, I can see a lot of folders there. AVF_INFO, DCIM, MISC, MP_ROOT and PRIVATE.

The videos folder is AVCHD in PRIVATE, and then inside we can find BDMV. Finally inside this folder we have CLIPINF, PLAYLIST and STREAM. And 2 files: INDEX.BDM and MOBILEOBJ.BDM.

Finally inside STREAM we have the movies.

My simple question is.... what and how to copy the movies from the SD card to the PC?

I didnt installed the SONY software DVD so I'm not sure if there is an app I should be using. Because I also have the a500 and decided to not install more software. Should I?

In any case this folder struture is a mess. Plus if I move one of the movies from within the STREAM folder to my computer, I can ope it, edit, the works... but for the camera is like if the movie is still there, but cant be played. I guess this has something to do with the database that the camera creates on the SD...

Is it me or this is a complete mess?
