Default Video file question

My sony camera stores video on a micro sd card. When I open the file on my computer there are 2 files per video, for example:

The THM file has nothing on it that I can tell, in fact my computer doesn't even know how to open it. Can anyone tell me the purpose of the 2 different files? Is there a way to have the camera not create the 2 files?

The THM file is a thumbnail file. Your camera uses the THM file. The computer doesn't need it and will often create it's own.

These files are usually very small. I don't know if your camera can be set to not create them. They are insignificant size any way.

Yep, just the thumbnail file your camera creates in order to find and view the clips on the camera itself. They are irrelevant once placed on the computer.
