    Since the supplied PHOTOfunSTUDIO doesn't seem to import GH1(3) videos I've created a simple replacement tool for Windows. I created this for myself, but thought others could take advantage of it so I'm going to share it here. I can only provide minimal support, but I will do what I can.

    The interface is simple: you supply the path to the GH1 file system, and a path to the desired destination. Click import and the photos and videos will be copied. There are a couple of options:
    1) The source and destination are remembered from use to use so I've provided for an optional sub-folder specification. This supports a use pattern where you have a target C:\Pictures, for example, and you want to be able to specify a unique sub-folder name for each import.
    2) Photos and Videos can be separated into two distinct sub-folders. The names of these sub-folders are specified in the Options page.
    3) Further, a date sub-folder can be created from the source file dates.
    4) Optionally copy Clipinfo (CPI) files for all videos.

    The tool renames the source video files to the date/time the video file was created and changes the extension from MTS to M2TS. I can easily support local languages if someone is willing to do the translations. If you want your language supported, let me know and I'll send you the strings to be translated. I didn't try to make this idiot proof, but it should handle to most common issues. If you have problems, send me detailed information and I'll do what I can to solve it.

    To install it, download the attached GH1Importer.zip file and unzip the contents to a temporary folder. Run the setup.exe program in the root folder.

    I hope you find this useful.

    You can download the latest version from this link:

    Phil,

    Many thanks for offering this tool to us.
    I hadn't seen the need...until PhotoFunStudio would only download 2 out of 5 or 6 video's on my card. I could access them by delving into the 'Stream' folder, but they obviously were then still '.mts' files with no date/time dated attached etc.
    So I thought your tool would be a better way to take my GH-13 AVCHD 25p files off the card.

    In case there was a problem on these files, I decided to use some more that PhotoFunStudio had no problem with.
    However your GH-1 File Importer started OK but quit after awhile...telling me 'it had a problem and needed to close.'
    In fact it had downloaded 2 of the 3 files on that card OK, so I moved over to the CF card that I had problems with in PhotoFunStudio...and your program quit immediately without downloading any of them.
    So, as is often the case, 'beta testing' hits a glitch.
    David

    I've sent you a PM requesting more information.

    Has anyone else who has downloaded the tool run into any problems?

    Phil, thanks for this nice tool.

    I used it 2 times.
    first, I tried to import 122 .MTS files (SH) and 1 MOV file, and it ended to shut down with one .MTS file not to be extracted from SD card, rest of files were OK.
    second, 4 .MTS files imported successfully.

    and I noticed this tool doesn't read .RW2 files.

    Did it give any message about the one .MTS file is didn't extract? I forgot about raw files, I'll modify the application to copy them as well. Stay tuned.

    I've updated the base note with version 1.0.4 which supports raw photo files and adds some diagnostic messages when an error occurs.

    I suspect I'm missing the point here - I've always just done a drag and drop from the card to the PC, and never used software for that. What did Photofunstudio do that was useful in this context? Have I been missing something good all along (like maybe it turns my crap shots into good ones?? )

    Me too, just drag and drop the stream folder. Cineform reads the files, so does Vegas and Tmpgenc..............???
