Good morning everyone- This is my first post to this invaluable site, so I know I'll get some good advice.
Here's my problem. I shot an event on an SD card and I believe part of the card is corrupt, because I'm having difficulty converting it. Only part of the card is giving me fits, I can access most of it.
Here are my specs. I shot the footage using my HMC 150, in 1080/24p, I have an iMac 10.6.6 and edit on Final Cut Pro 7. When I try Log and Transfer, FCP gives me an error message and won't allow me to convert those specific MTS files. Out of 35 MTS files, there's only about three that are giving me fits. So I tried to copy the SD card onto my hard drive and use L&T from there, but that didn't work. Then I tried Roxio Toast, no luck. I tried ClipWrap. No dice. I'm considering Voltaic. because they advertise that they can convert corrupt files. Anyone have luck with that?
I've also been in contact with someone from Panasonic and they suggest using AVCCAM Restorer, which I'm a bit nervous about. Some forum users said that they used it and it erased all their footage!
So, what do you guys think? I really need to finish this project. My client is getting antsy. Help!!
Noah- What card restore apps are you referring to? The AVCCAM Restorer specifically or is there something else?
Jan- I thought there was a repair clip function when you put the card in the camera, but I'll be damned if I can figure out how to run it. I searched all over the camera menus and cant find an option to repair damaged card. I even looked in the hmc150 manual and couldn't find anything!
