It is a hp probook 4520s and Windows 7 professional. The clips were downloaded via the CF card via a card reader into the Canon xf utility software. I can view these files on my computer but they have file extensions of .cif .thm .mxf and .sif so none of them are MPEG2 files that I can access and use
A single contents folder then a CLIPS001 folder then 3 folders: AA0033, ...34, and ....35, and an Index.MIF file. Each of these folders splits into 5 files with the following file extensions: .cif .thm .xmf and .sif. The .mxf file has nearly all the data in it.
When I right click on the clips and select properties they show the clip's video standard is 'MPEG2'
I can play the clips through the canon xf utility software but when I click on it when accessing the cf directly I get message 'Windows cant open the file'
Still installing the software; will keep you posted
It does play the mxf file but when I try and save it as an mpeg2 file it does not allow me to. Any suggestions?
