Batch rename? Easy.

Changing a large number of clips from MOV to MPG sounds a bit laborious, but hopefully it works.

Windows users can open a command window, and type:
ren .mov .mpg

(there is an asterisk to the left of each period, but DPReview doesn't show it. The asterisk is a "wild card" character that will cause the command to match any name.)

That will REName all the files in one shot. You can also do this in a batch file upon import, and there are plenty of third-party apps for batch renaming for both Windows and Mac.
