Hi, I somehow corrupted the SD card from my camcorder that has my son and daughters b/day footage on :suicide: I simply popped it in my card reader but when trying to open the drive it complained about boot sector issues and was effectively fried...don't know if the reader caused it or the usb port... Anyway i've recovered the files using both Pc Inspector and Power Data recovery, the problem is they wont play in either VLC or Windows Media player. VLC does nothing and WMP moans about codec etc.. I've even deleted a .mov file from another SD card that isn't corrupt and restored it to test and both players still fail in the same way (this is better as at least it means it's not the card at fault here) Any ideas how i can get these .mov files playing again ? Obviously as a family memory it would be a tragedy if they were lost Thanks in advance. Mike. ps any other good forums i could post this on ?
