Unable to import AVCHD (Sony MTS) video files into Lightroom

I am still using Lightroom 4, I am willing to upgrade if I can be assured it will fix one major problem I am having: I am unable to import video from my Sony HandyCam. Does anyone know if there is a fix for importing with Lightroom 4, or alternatively if upgrading to Lightroom 6 will resolve this problem?

Sorry if this was already addressed in another thread, I reviewed several threads but could not find a specific answer to this question.

First thing I'd suggest is to check the list of supported video files on Adobe's site.

Next, I'd make sure you've got the latest update to version 4. I'd point you to some download pages, but you didn't say whether you're PC or Mac. It's been awhile since I've used 4, but there may also be a "check for updates" choice in the Help menu.

Lastly, if you're interested in moving to 6, I'd suggest downloading a trial and seeing if you're able to import your video files for yourself.
