He's not talking about the resolution, Ann. He's talking about the end of one clip missing half a second as it moves into the next clip because the longer shot takes up more than one file due to FAT32 limits.
If you have copied the original card over to the hard drive as is, without alteration, and used Media Browser to import, then spanned clips come in as one.
Jim, good catch.
Dont think the build in programme will help you out. Its just to edit and to upload to a social media..
Just to clarify... did you copy the individual files or the entire folder structure from SD card to hard drive... or are you importing directly from the SD card?
The way it is supposed to work (according to http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1015001?tstart=0 previous discussion) is importing from the folder links the files together, as Jim said
I copied the entire card to my computer, then tried to import with Media Browser. It brought in the five .mp4 files in as individual clips instead of one spanned clip.
I'm wondering if the fact that Samsung wraps its AVCHD video in a .mp4 file makes this a problem for the Media Browser? All the other discussions on our forum have been about .mts files.
You said there is no standalone program, but I would still go to the Samsung site and find the support/download page for the camera... to see if there is software you may download from Samsung to stitch the files together
Also, see if Samsung has a contact page to send them an email asking for help

I missed that before, but probably yes. AVCHD doesn't come in an .mp4 wrapper. The Samsung is recording non-standardized video, so you will likely just have to deal with the separate clips.
