This may be a Panasonic-specific question. My camera is a DMC-FT2.
On the memory card, apart from the JPG files a lot of other file types can be found. Do you know what they contain and what they are for?
\DCIM \100_PANA +P1000001.JPG, etc. photos \MISC empty folder \PRIVATE \AVCHD \AVCHDTN +THUMB.DTD about 2MB, contains thumbnails of movies? +THUMB.TID about 2KB, maybe some kind of index \BDMV \CLIPINF +00000.CPI, etc. ?? 1 per movie \PLAYLIST +00000.MPL, etc. ?? only a few, seems to group up several movies together \STREAM +00000.MTS, etc. the movies themselves +INDEX.BDM small file, probably index +MOVIEOBJ.BDM small file, probably index \IISVPL +00000.VPL, etc. ?? only a few, one per playlist \MODELINF +MODELINF.DAT just contains one line with the name of the camera
Do you know of any reference information that would explain all of this?
