ok, so i know there are a lot of topics on scenefiles, but i am still a bit confused. how do i put a .txt scene file file, onto an sd card then be able to use those scene files? is this possible? if it is, how do i do it. i have an hmc150 btw. any help would be appreciated.

The easiest way is to save your scene files from the HMC150. That'll create all the appropriate directories and put the .txt file where it should be. Then you can edit that text file, or add another one to the same place where the camera-generated one is, etc.

The scene files are camera-specific. You can adapt HPX170 scene files to work with an HMC150 but it takes some work and is not for the faint of heart. :) HVX200 scene files are going to have different settings values so they won't work, and HPX2000 files are going to be completely incompatible.

So, to restate it in the easiest fashion: no, stick with HMC150 scene files...
