60fps won't convert

I have a Sony HDR-PJ580v. I have the settings to film in the highest quality. It's at 1920x1080 at 60p. It does film in this and save as this, but when I put it on my computer it steps it down to 30fps. I don't know what to do. Not much on google or anywhere else to help. Feel like I can't be the only one to have the problem.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, Cheers.

I've got a Pavilion DV7 Notebook with i5 core if it matters.

Download windows movie maker. It's free. You'll be able to halve the movie speed (dropping it to 30fps) and save it.

It has plenty of other editing tools and is reasonably easy to use.

Are you trying to bring it into an editing program or just viewing it?

How are you importing it onto your computer?

Some software cuts the frame rate. If you have final cut pro or something similar it'll import at the correct frame rate.

Either way it cuts it to 30. I just open up the sd card as a folder to view it and it says its 29fps. I know it's 60fps. It reads 60fps when I watch the footage on my camera and I can physically see the difference.

The simple method of downloading it to your PC will not drop frames (assuming its PC your using?) if you right click and check details it should show the original 60fps with the resolution information.
Are you grabbing the raw data off a memory device or downloading through a program? If the latter, try copying the raw data in a straight folder copy. Now the viewing and editing process you use after that may drop frames, but you're saying the file is dropping to 30 frames by simply downloading it?
Where are you getting the information on the downloaded files frame rate?

Edit-sorry just re-read your post above that answers some of these questions. So its showing 30fps only on your properties of the raw SD card file when inserted without even downloadign to your PC? weird.
Tried it on a different PC?

Na, I'll have to try it. I'll let you know what happens. I don't know what could possibly be going wrong. It is in 60 fps when I review it on the camera and then view it on a computer and it's just 30. So fucking weird???

You are copying it down to Hard drive rather than running off SD card plugged into PC, or USB from Camera right?

I'm not sure what you mean? I have filmed it onto an SD card and the camera hard drive. For both I plugged it into the Computer through the USB. The SD card I also took out and put into the computer. I tried downloading and not and just viewing the footy. Nothing worked. I am gonna try a different computer.
