"Nothing changed. Tried both cards. Tried copying the AVCHD file over to reside on the computer's hard drive. FCPX would not recognize the .mts files. ***? I will use Express to finish this project as I can't waste any more time on this. It's clear that FCPX isn't going to work for me going forward. If you guys fix this program, let me know, but I'm heading to Adobe to purchase Premiere. Not that I want to send you a parting shot, but FCP 7 was a beautiful program - a flawless program. I can only hope that Apple fired the developers of X as it has done horrendous damage to your reputation."
