you need to download the regfile i posted to somewhere that it can be double-click upon, (download it to your desktop?) and allow it to be merged to your registry.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hi Shark,

I made the changes to the Registry, as per your instructions.

I've found another satisfactory solution to the whole issue.

Given that I thought the original issue was in some way related to Nero, I went back to the Dell site to see if I could download the original ap'. The Nero-related ap' was 'Sync-up', powered by Nero and part of the rather nice- although ultimately annoying and useless- Dell Stage.

I couldn't, so I went to Nero, checked out their downloads and found a free media player/organiser called 'KWIK MEDIA'.

I downloaded that (and got forced into spending 4 on a player ap') and bingo, I can now see, organise and play all the AVCHD clips!

I still can't view thumbnails of the clips in either Windows photo viewer or Windows Media Player, but the organisation of the Nero player is actually superior, so I'm happy, notwithstanding the unresolved issue.

Many thanks for all your help, Danny and Shark; very much appreciated.
