Convert Canon Vixia HF G30 60p mts video to AIC for iMovie

Here is a simple guide for you to convert Canon Vixia HF G30 60p mts video to AIC for iMovie editing.

I just received the HF G30 and am still working my way through learning how it works. I'm using the iLife '11 version of iMovie on my MacBook Pro and MacPro desktop and neither is recognizing my Canon HF G30 camcorder when I connect it via the USB cable. The strange thing is the Canon icon and SD card icon both show up on my desktop but iMovie isn't recognizing the camcorder as connected and therefore won't import the 60p mts files. 
When I try to manually import the AVCHD footage from the SD card, iMovie says there are no recognizable files, although the AVCHD files are definitely there (this is consistent with all my recordings and not just on one SD card). I wrote Canon and they have no idea why this occurring, claiming it's an Apple issue. Any idea what's going on and how I can solve it?
