    No mind readers here - if you are getting an error message you have to actually tell us what it is

     

    the way to import from your computer is to either drag the photos to the iPhoto icon in the dock or to the iPhoto window or under the file menu in iPhoto use the import command

    I tried in everyway with no success...mts files are not recognized!

    well if you have tried "everyway" then it is ovbious that there is no solution since there is nothing that you have not tried

     

    MTS file is a AVCHD movie - they are not supported in iPhoto until version 9.3 - for earlier versions you must use iMovie to import them

    First of all sorry for "my english"... Then if I post a question to apple support i need a solution otherways...

    So, i use 9.3 version this is the reason of my post! Probably there is a bug because guidelines are useless...

    Sorry but we are not mind readers so ONLY know what you tell us

     

    Your profile says you have OS X version 10.6.8 - iPhoto 9.3 will not work with that OS - you do not tell us what version of iPhoto you have

     

    so once again the actual exact error message and a list of what you have tried and the actual versions of iPhoto and of the OS that you are running would be a big help

     

    Then if I post a question to apple support i need a solution otherways...

    It is not your English - it is simply not providing simple, basic information - we can not see your system and only know what you tell us - providing incorrect and incomplete information makes it impossible to give valid assistance

    you're right :)

    But it's a simple problem... Iphoto 9.3 finally recognize AVCHD...they say...but It's not true...not for me, probably...WHY??? I replied to guidelines for importing those files but only from camera...that's all! I have many files archived in the computer and i hope to put in iphoto...

    I'll try to put them in a SD creating a tree of folders simulating a camera...and then I'll tell you the result...

    Others advices??? ;)
