    Hi All,

    Asking for tips for by brother. He bought a Sony CX-405 recently. His PC is a Pentium Core-2 running Windows XP. He uses Premiere 6.5 to edit his video and burns into DVDs. His current videos are from the Sony camcorders and imported via firewire connection. Now, he just want to use his current system to edit the videos from his CX-405 video camera.
    1. How to import the videos from the microSD card ? Can it be transferred using USB adapter ?
    2. Possible for Premiere 6.5 to edit AVCHD or MP4 format directly ?
    3. If item 2 is not possible, is it ok to use Winx Converter to convert AVCHD or MP4 clips to AVI format ?

    Thanks in advance.

  2. The Premiere 6.5 manual says nothing about AVCHD or .mts files, so you're probably out of luck. Windows XP on a Pentium is also likely to be grossly underpowered.

    You can convert the camera files to something like DV avi or HDV, but you're not going to be able to take advantage of the camera's capabilities.

    I suppose he is well aware of degradation of video quality. He does not wish to relearn using Windows 10 and Premiere CS. Of course, spend $ on a new system.
    I guess he just have to try importing via USB and convert them to AVI.
