    If you are shooting in AVCHD mode then the movies are stored in MTS format in a different directory.

    \PRIVATE\AVCHD\BDMV\STREAM

    If you are shooting M4V or MOV then they should be in the same folder with the JPEGs.

    Hello,

    From experience with a Panasonic camcorder, you need to use the included software or a third party that supports the G5's AVCHD format (think of AVCHD the same way as RAW, without compatible software, you can do little with them) you computer will not even see the files.
