  1. Ok, I have some very important videos of my brothers wedding I accidentally deleted from my phone (Samsung Epic 4g) and after realizing what I had done I recovered the files with "ParetoLogic Data Recovery".

    One file did recover and will play (45 MB), however the two bigger files that are the bread and butter of the wedding will not. Here is all the info from the two videos I could find:

    Video 1:
    Type: Movie Clip
    Size: 191 MB

    When played via VLC: It acts like its reading the file to play, but then just stops.

    When played via MPC:
    C:\Documents and Settings\*******\Desktop\Recovered Items\Fully Recovered\1.mp4::Output

    I have installed Klite, CCCP, and a few other codec packs and nothing has worked. (uninstalled after realizing they did nothing, but kept klite)

    I have also tried to convert to different file formats, however when i drag it into the program every one I have used says it is not a valid file or invalid file format.

    I am really trying to be as thorough as possible in case anybody can PLEASE help me, if I lose these videos i will let a lot of people down!

    Help me, TechSpot geniuses, your my only hope!
