Here's a workflow tutorial for Log and Transfer:
Step 1: Backup the card to a separate hard drive that you archive. Watch the video...it gets into specifics.

Thanks so much for your help.
I'm using final cut Ver. 6... does that change anything?
I followed these instructions and when I selected the AVCHD file on the camera's hard drive it tells me that AVCHD contains unsupported media or has an invalid directory structure. I haven't changed anything on the camera's hard drive or it's structure. At the beginning of the tutorial it discusses downloading transfer plug ins for the Sony cameras, but doesn't say anything about the handy cams. I looked for a plug in and couldn't find one so I'm assuming I don't need it. Is that correct?
Any other ideas?

1) Are you confident you recorded in HD and SD? SD will not work with Log and Transfer.
2) The camera should appear in the Log and Transfer after you have opened it. You should not normally have to navigate to the media.
3) If you do have to navigate to the media, just point Log and Transfer to the camera media volume, do not drill down in the volume to folders or files contained within. Log and Transfer needs to see all the folders etc. contained on the camera storage to work.

yes, I definitely recorded in hd... I do have to navigate to the media, the camera's hard drive shows up as a USB drive... I selected the entire drive, but still no luck.

Take a look at ClipWrap2 from Divergentmedia.com. It will work great on these clips.
Hmmmm...did you shoot 1080p60? FCP doesn't work with that format either...60fps at 1080 is not a standard format, and FCP 7 only works with standard formats.
