Convert SONY HDR-SR12 60i AVCHD to MPEG2 for Premiere Pro CS3

This summer holiday, our college arranged an activity for us which is to record a short movie of our summer life. The equipment I was given was SONY HDR-SR12 Camcorder which can shoot in AVCHD at a frame rate of 60i. And I shot the basketball match in SONY HDR-SR12, and want to convert Full HD 1920 x 1080 60i AVCHD to MPEG2 for premiere pro cs3.

I often process the post-production in Adobe Premiere Pro CS3. But when I was to put Full HD 60i M2TS to it, I became astonished because I find M2TS is not compatible to Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 which is very wired. I don’t understand why my college will give me an AVCHD camcorder whose outputting files can not be edited in their software. I tired many converters and they all fail to handle the conversion of 60i MTS to MPEG-2. When I played back a converted MPEG-2, footage filmed with a tripod appears good quality but if the camera moves during the shooting, the images flicked in a bad quality which is really annoying.
