What CODEC is INSIDE that file? http://forums.adobe.com/thread/440037?tstart=0
Once you know the codec inside that file wrapper, you should be able to find/install so the files will work
Otherwise, convert to something that will edit

I just ran into the same problem and solved it by changing the file extensions from .mod to .m2t.
What should I do instead?
Get new cameras that record video to standardized formats.
Just rename them as .mpg
Let me know if that works!
Sent from my iTouch
.mpg no longer works. I can't explain why but .m2t does. So give that a try.
Is m2t the new mpg... lol
