I'm having the same issue with video shot from my Sony HDR-CX150. I'm trying to drag straight from the memory card into iPhoto 9.3 (650.39). I've tried both the BDMV and AVCHD directories from the /private/avchd/bdmv/ path... NO LUCK! Does it make any difference if the memory card is in the memory card reader versus having the camera connected directly to my Mac? I certainly hope not.

@Fester the Tester
How are you archiving?
Did you initially bring over the entire folder structure like on the support page?
Have you tried dragging to the Desktop first and then importing to iPhoto?

I am considering the purchase of a compact mega zoom camera, the new ones that shoot stills and HD Video. I was looking at the Panasonic Lumix zs20. One of the highly touted features is the AVCHD Video format.
Now I hear they will not import into iMovie? What?
Now I read the fix that is supposed to come out doesn't work.
Am I reading this correctly? I need to know before I buy a camera.

@brwnsfan... I wouldn't let that sway you from buying the camera. It's obvious that iPhoto will let you do it (one day soon) once the bugs are worked out. You can still use HandBrake to convert it to mp4 format.

The Ravens are old and you guys are getting there too.
So you hope... I'll root for you guys over the Ravens any day!
Handbrake? A download I assume?
A pain to work with or just one more step in the process?
Not too bad. There's also away to automate the conversion.

I'm trying to get Apple's attention on this one as well.
