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 or 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? ideas? James
