H6n desperate for advice.
on May 19, 2019 at 8:04:47 am

All audio files from the wedding are MIA on the card. I've been using the h6 since it came out and I have never had a problem before. 0 bytes on all folders, but everything recorded as normal. I noticed I have a new folder once I insert the card into my CPU with random letters and numbers. When I try the play the card inside the H6 it just says invalid project. I have ran some recovery software and it doesn't even register the folder numbers or dates. Please, for the love of god tell me I don't have to re record and ADR some speeches, and the officiants words? Does anyone have any advice for me? This has never happened before.

Hello Brett welcome to the Cow Audio Forum and sorry for your pain.

Sometimes, a card can become corrupted if it is not reformatted fairly regularly, like before each shoot. Yes, you CAN operate OK if you don't, but at some point the card can't handle it and starts misbehaving.

You have done all of the things I would have done, but one. Have you tried to access the files as Raw Audio Files using a free program called Audacity? Download Audacity to your computer, install it and see if it can read the files on your card as Raw Files. You may have to tweek the sample rate and channels to get the right speed, but you can then export the files to somewhere safe.

I also put "Invalid Project" and "H6" in Google and here's what I found.

Hey! Thanks so much for the reply. I tried the audacity route and couldnt get anything to play back. I contacted the officiant, best man and maid of honor... and we went ahead and did ADR the entire day. Im so thankful they were on board and they enjoyed the process of seeing themselves and reciting the audio back. Now I have even better audio and a bride that is very satisfied with the efforts.

Did Audacity see your lost files?
