Question: "My Sony HD camcorder saves video files in .mts format. Now I would like to burn it in the DVD to send to families. I tried to burn MTS files through Nero vision, but it doesn't works. Before I do use or dl another program would like to be very sure what I am doing."

Answer: the latest Sony, Panasonics and Cannon HD camcorder are using MTS/M2TS for saving recordings. The MTS and M2TS are basically the same thing you can change the file extension manually (M2TS (after import to computer), MTS (on camcorder). They might have slight differences in term of video codec and I won't talk more details about it but the result of video quality are pretty much the same. For converting and burning MTS to DVD, you could download DVD Creator, which is great MTS to DVD converter. You can burn DVD from MTS videos directly without extra video converting works.
