Need Assistance Recovering Corrupt Videos
on Sep 4, 2011 at 8:33:24 am

Shot a wedding yesterday and for the first time I'm having a major issue with my D7000.

Around four of the clips are corrupt and do not play in camera or on my computer (I've tried VLC, WMP, Real player, Quicktime, and also tried playing it in my editor but no luck).

The files are large so I know there's some content there.

Is there anyway to salvage some of this footage? Obviously this is a big issue as I can't reshoot the wedding.

Any help would be appreciate it.

Do you get warning messages telling you the files are corrupt or are you just saying that because they won't play?

It's interesting that they don't play in camera either, that shouldn't be happening...perhaps you storage card failed.

I get different messages from different media players.

WMP says it encountered a problem. Quicktime says this is not a file it understands and so on.

I also think the sd card failed. It is a good SD card and meets the recommendations needed to shoot 1080 on the D7000 so I'm not sure.

The thing is that the files are large so I know there's information there, I wonder if it's possible recover/salvage anything from it.

I think it may be worth auditioning some of the free to try data recovery programs designed for recovering corrupted photographs - they may do video too

Thanks Steve.

Nothing has worked so far unfortunately. Will update if I have a breakthrough so that others in the same position can benefit.

Definitely sound like a file corruptions the D7000 shots H264 with a .mov container so should playback in most media players.

what SD card/s are you using? How long are the clips? Mac or PC platform?

I use Transcent Class 10 SD cards. Clips should be 30-60 seconds long I'm guessing from the size. PC.

Cheers
