  1. Hello mates,

    I have a corrupted micro SD card. With huge trying I could to recover it's data using **recuva** tool, but now my files are corrupted also. They are video file with some famous extensions such as 3gp, mp4, flv, wmv, avi. My video file players are *VLC* and *Media player classic*. The *media player classic* says, "can not render the file" and *VLC* doesn't show anything.

    Is there a way to repair these video files?

    Thanks.

    Don't think so. With the corrupted micro SD, there's no way to edit them to make them valid again - - sure hope you have another copy elsewhere (aka backups?)

    No I haven't any copy of them. Are you sure?

    Yes. If you needed to fix the SD so it could be read, it is rare that the files are preserved in a usable state. If your recovery tool failed, try another but don't be surprised that it fails too.
