    So, the AVCHD MTS files are here: PRIVATE/AVCHD/BDMV/STREAM.

    What's all the other stuff in the PRIVATE folder and subfolders? It looks like some kind of database about the clips? Does any program use any of those files?

    Also, a pet peeve: I hate when I delete all the movies, it starts numbering them again at 00000.MTS. Why can't it remember the number sequence like with photos?

    Well, the file structure is explained here:

    AVCHD - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Evidently it's AVCHD standard (kind of).

    Still don't know the answer to whether any programs use all those other files: clip info, etc.
