I just got a new Sony HXR NX 100 camera. When I recorded in XAVC-S mode device explorer can't find the files (or more acurately, wont open the "PRIVATE\M4ROOT\CLIP" folder on the SD card). How can I properly import them? Yes I know I could just copy and paste from the SD card, but then long clips will be missing a frame (or at least they did in AVCHD mode).
I'll have to find the software and load it up. I didn't install it when I got it because I didn't think it was necessary. It's sony to sony. I also tried it using Sony's "Content Management Utility". It also cannot locate or recognize the files, which are stored in "E:\PRIVATE\M4ROOT\CLIP" as .mp4 files. I'm using Vegas 13.
I didn't initially navigate to the folder. I let Device Explorer do its thing. When it didn't load them I tried to point it and it still would not recognize the files. The only way to see them right now is in Window file manager or explorer.
I'll try and load the camera software and see if that works. It's actually not a BIG deal because I can always just copy and paste where I want just like any other file. So far for this shoot, the files haven't been more than 5 minutes long. It may become a situation when I have longer files that the camera breaks up into multiple files and I have to concatenate, I may drop a frame or 2.
Peter, Are you saying that the XAVC-S format doesn't break apart large files? That's great if so. How about DV files? Are AVCHD files the only ones that break up? If that's the case...then it's really just a matter of "copying" all other files (besides AVCHD) instead of actually "Importing" them?

Yes if you are recording on exFAT formatted SD-cards, that allow for file sized above 2GB. I think there is no change for DV and AVCHD files. I did not use them for a long time. When I last used these, I had not jet exFAT formatted cards.
