I recently ran out of power while recording 4 channels on a zoom H4n. The files on the card were 0Kbs when I checked on the night but when I got home and ran CHKDSK on a windows PC, I recovered two 1.5GB files with the file extension .CHK ...These must be my files, one file is the stereo line and the other file is the stereo mic.
The recorder was recording .WAV uncompressed. I've tried replacing the file extension .CHK with .WAV but this has not helped. Others have recommended trying to import the files to Audacity but that hasnt worked yet either.
Can someone help? It appears I have the full volumes of my missing files, but as .CHK, What to do?
I have no idea what they are, but your best bet is to get Audacity and import it as RAW.
You get options you need to set, fiddle around and perhaps you get lucky.
Since you have a lot of data, it it's probably indeed your sound files.
(1.5 gig for 2 channels is a recording time of over two hours. Does that make sense?)
