That's the software I was leaning towards. But I had some questions about it.
Is it easy to use?
When you burn AVCHD to DVD is it high definition or does it down grade to standard definition? Or do you need a Blue-Ray burner?
Also, with the MP4 files, you know how the camera only plays them one at a time? Can CyberLink piece them together to make one continuous movie?
Thanks for the help Barry.

Depending on what features you want to use, PD can be very easy.
As for AVCHD to DVD, that's got 2 answers...
1) You can burn AVCHD to DVD and retain the HD quality, but you need an AVC capable BR player to watch them.
2) Normally, DVD burns downscale all content to SD so they meet the specs for most DVD players.
Much more info is on the Cyberlink forum.
Powerdirector can use just about any type of file, split/join/you name it, MP4 included.
Please note that HD video will bring an average computer to it's knees, so please download a trial version, join the PD forum, and ask questions.

iMovie will do this handily and Final Cut Pro X imports the M500 video without trouble. I've done it many times. You can then output from iMovie or FCP to a DVD.
