Premiere + Mac + m2t files = 0… Please help…

Hi there

I am currently undertaking my first piece of editing and am thoroughly enjoying it!! It is to be a climbing film, mainly filmed on gopro hero 2 cameras with some extra footage filmed on a good quality Canon camcorder…

The mp4 files that the gopro produces work fine on Premier (that I run on my mac) but Premiere however does not like the m2t files produced by the camcorder, saying ‘The file has an unsupported compression type’ when I try to import.. I have heard that this is because I am on a mac… Is this the case? Are there converters out there?

Could someone help me import these files please as I am on a roll and there are shots filmed with the camcorder that are essential to the piece.

Thanks a lot in advance,
