Using a M2TS file format in Sony Vegas? Need Tech help

Hey guys i need some help, this is one of my playlists for my youtube channel. I do commentary playthroughs for video games.
Well i got a huge predicament, with my older capture card that i used to have was the "Roxio HD pro" that i recorded my first 30 or so video's, it recorded the file type into a M2TS format. Which does not load up into vegas. Also i tried many different converters and all it seems to do is convert the raw video file into a very small like 100 mb file that can not be used for nothing.
I looked up youtube tuts on this and apparently alot of people are having the same issues. I can actually upload the files to youtube but with out commentary thats no good, but that is the only thing i can do because apparently youtube recognizes the files.
I guess its a special container format for HD files but not a very flexible format, my older capture card software actually was able to output these files a MP4 file container format that could then be used in vegas for some reason, if thats the case, their has to be a way to convert them some how so they will work in vegas. But as for now i am kind of at a stand still. I won't be able to finish my play through on this game.
Basically i got my new capture card, the "elgato" and i do not regret it, its probably one of the best capture cards out their, i been using that for the video that are displayed on my playlist for raw MP4 video and commentary audio which is loaded into vegas just fine so i can edit it. How when i started this game, i had the old capture card, so the other 30 or so video's are in that M2TS file format.
This youtube video kind of shows what type of problem i am facing. The quality is just terrible and it only loads the video into the track and not the audio of the game. It does not build the peakes like it shows in this video either. My video's just simply will not load into vegas, but i do have vegas pro 12.
After doing some research on this, it appears that people claim their is a way to fix it and just doing a google search you can find alot of things, how ever i tried many different tuts and i still can't seem to get it to work for me.
Any tech savvy people could possibly help me or have an idea on how to do this?
I tried Divx converter and format factory, though they do convert the files, but they basically convert them into small file sizes, from like a 1.2 GB raw file to like 110 MB, which obviously will not work.
