i have been using by a sandisk 16 gb sd card with my camcorder and filled it up for the first time. to clear space, i opened up the card's file directory on my mac and dragged and dropped the files into the trash.
over the weekend, i shot some new footage which i am now trying to transfer into fcp 7. for the first time, the clips on the disk will not automatically appear in the transfer window. when i try to go through the file directory to bring the files into the transfer window i get the following mesage: "CANON" contains unsupported media or has an invalid directory structure. Please choose a folder whose directory structure matches supported media.'
the footage plays fine in the camera and the mts clip files are in the card's directory.
is there something i can do to transfer the footage? did i clear the card the wrong way?
you have to format those cards on the camera. The cards must keep the original folders/files structure in order to L&T to work.
try to copy in your finder these .mts files, then try toc onvert them to any QT codec with MPGEStreamclip.
