I can't upload AVCHD video to my mac?

I own a Macbook(intel) and after recently shooting some videos in ACVHD format on my Panasonic Lumix FT2 I found that when I plug the camera into the computer the videos don't even show up(they are on the camera). Anyone know what to do?

"Problem with AVCHD Lite video files on mac?

I just bought a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35. I recorded some video files but when I plugged the memory card into my Macbook Pro, they didn't show up. I tried plugging the camera into my computer too but they still didn't show. Then I tried recording in Motion JPEG and those showed up when I plugged in the memory card and the camera. This wouldn't really be a problem but Motion JPEG files eat up the memory so much. Like on my 8GB memory card, I could only record 8 minutes of Motion JPEG but could record over an hour with AVCHD. How do I get the AVCHD files to show up?!"
