Default Sony XR500 mts to DVD?

My friend asked me to help her burn AVCHD mts files to DVD for watching on TV. She sent me the AVCHD mts files from her 2009 model Sony handycam HDR-XR500V, but the Nero v10 on my computer does not recognize the format. Any help will be appreciated.

I sometimes use MPEG Streamclip to join several clips together, but have no success importing .mts files to the tool. Since your Nero does not support mts format, you shall convert them or merge them to mpg or wmv as Nero format. You may also try Windows DVD Maker.

The main issue you might take care is that the video size for DVD. The Windows DVD maker will show you the icon with about the time length, but I don't think it is enough. I have no idea of a perfect DVD burner to present high quality video yet.

Try the Miro Video Converter (free). Drag and drop a video file to it's main window, then select an output type to convert them. It recognizes the 1080i/60 .mts files from a Sony NEX-5.

I have used Freemake Video Converter to create DVDs from MP4, Flash, AVI and MOV. It supports others as well. Very simple. Just be aware that the installer will ask to install some additional toolbars and programs, and you have to opt out.
