Ted, I read a bit about CPI files. From what I found, they are not the actual video file, but have descriptive information on the video file that can be used by video editing and playback software. You should find an *.MTS file elsewhere on your camera. Here is one explanation that included a description of a file structure that may or may not be duplicated on your camera - I don't know.

File Extension - What is .CPI file in AVCHD file system for? How to open .CPI on Windows and Mac?

So you actually need to find the *.MTS file to get the video itself. You may also want the CPI file that goes with it to inform whatever software you are using on the video file.

Hope that helps - and is correct.

Once you have the video, I have found Handbrake to do a pretty good job if you want to convert it. Available for both Mac and Windows, I believe.
