Sony X70 had a database error, so the recording is showing as an .RSV file instead of an .MXF file.

Hello forum,

I figure I would take this route to try resolving my issue since the Sony telephone support wasn't sure how to address it.

Last Sunday at the end of an interview I had shot, when I stopped the camera's recording, a database error notification appeared on the screen. I allowed the camera to repair the database, but when I went to preview the interview I had just filmed, it wasn't there as a viewable video file, which was puzzling.

I went home, looked at the SD card, and discovered that in the XDROOT > Clip directory there is a RSV file (and an accompanying KLV file) that is the approximate size (around 8gb) of what the interview MXF file would have been. I cannot do anything with this RSV view, though, it isn't any sort of encoded video file, and I have tried to both import the file (via Catalyst Prepare) as well as reattempted a database review inside the X70 itself without any success.

I would really like to salvage this interview since it's a relatively import part of my project, and I have a feeling that the RSV file is some sort of in-camera backup or pre-processed data, so is there anyone who can assist me with this issue? I would be highly grateful if so.

Thank you.

Ivan

Could that be an SLV file?

See this old post in NXCAM forum.

Thanks for the response. These may be a type of salvage file, but the file extension is specifically .RSV. I have seen that threat you linked before when I was researching my particular issue, but I don't see a "salvage" function on the X70, the closet being the database repair, which doesn't seem to do much to fix my issue.

A little while ago I came across an AXSM utility that allows the clip recovery of .RSV files as "reserve files," but the program is looking for a piece of Sony hardware, so it won't allow me to proceed further. (Investigating further, it's for an F5 or F55 recorder.)

I have the same camera and situation. Camera crashed (first time ever) while recording, and I lost the clip it was on. There is a .RSV file of about the right size with the right clip number. Did you find a way to recover yours?
