Panasonic TS3, why can I see my movies?

I've loaded my pictures on my computer (mac), but I can't seem to see my movies? Where are they? I've looked through all the folders? Where are they hiding?

Most likely the software you are using to load the pictures and videos to your computer is not loading the videos.
A common occurrence with some software/operating systems.

Can you use the click and drag technique to copy the videos from the camera to your computer?

If not, you should consider connecting a card reader to your computer.
The card reader with a card inserted will be seen by the computer as being a disk drive.

Hidden in a folder

So after lots of searching it was in one of the .MTS files. My roommate then converted them so I can see them in vlc player. The files were not obvious and took a while to figure out. It went like this,

Camera --> Private folder --> AVCHD folder --> BDMV folder --> Stream folder --> Copy MTS files to "desktop" and rename them to what you want.

That is a lot of steps to see a movie. We did some reading and because this movie format for this camera is so new on the market that there isn't really anything else. We could find anything.

Next problem is formatting them to get them on iMovie...the drag and drop technique doesn't work.
