Cannon Vixia HF20 Blu-ray

I am unable to import the Canon HF20 video into "Sony Vegas 9" high-definition video editing software.  I am not able to verify that the Sony software nor my computer sees the Canon camcorder.  The Sony software is compatable with the AVCHD format, as well as other formats.  I am using the internal 32GB of memory to record.  How do I accomplish this? 

 

I have successfully imported the video from the Canon camcorder into the Canon software, but cannot burn a blu-ray from it.  This indicates my computer does see the camcorder.

Make sure the Canon is plugged into the wall as well as the USB port.  Make sure the Canon is in "Play" mode.  Turn it on.  Windows Vista and 7 will recognize just like any other storage device.  An older OS may also but I haven't personally tried it.

Sounds like some sort of issue with Vegas if the Canon software works.

 

I haven't tried Vegas myself, I decided that rather than go down the piracy route I'd use kdenlive on my Linux box instead this time around.

 

If you don't intend to edit the files, there's a way (that involves doing some file renaming) to burn the AVCHD files to a Blu-Ray and have it play.  I don't remember the details, I think the info might be linked to from the AVCHD Wikipedia page?

Since you mentioned the piracy thing, I Googled a bit and it seems the cracked version of Vegas is not able to import AVCHD files.

 

 

It is a bit odd though that the OP states his computer doesn't recgnize the drive either but the Canon software does ...
