OK I'll check out mplayer2.

On another note, I have always transferred files form the sony
camcorders to my linux systems, via cp or scp, without issues.

Now, the new sony (HDR-PJ760V) is giving me troubles.

I plugged the usb on the sony camcorder into my gentoo system.
The usb was auto discovered. I am able to use Dragon player
to watch the individual files, such as 00001.MTS via Dragon
player and the camcorder being mounted (96 G of flash).

Ok so I was then initially able to use cp to copy the files
off onto the gentoo hard drive. After I did a few this way, 
the mount point now drops almost immediately. I can re-discover
the sony camcorder and automount via the file-manager. I can see
the files and play them one at a time via Dragon Player. But, when
I go to copy them with:

cp *.MTS /usr/local/video/jeff/basketball/TR
cp 00000.MTS /usr/local/video/jeff/basketball/TR

I get Erno 5 as the mount is lost evey time now.

The mount drops. I never had this problem before, but it
is a different camera. What really has me stumped is it
worked for a while for a few files, now it drops the mount
every time.

I even power cycled the camcorder, to no avail.

Any ideas?

Sony evil?
