Adding an Extension to Photorec - Begginer

#1 Post by MeloB » 14 Aug 2012, 04:21

I am desperately trying to retreive some lost videos from my Panasonic camcorder and Photorec found and recovered one in .m2ts. The other ones, however, with .mts extensions can't be found. I can't figure out how to add the extension in fidentity after multiple attempts following instructions. Can't figure out where the starting point is, don't know if the Terminal (macbook pro) is the right place to to be entering the commands.

Photorec.sig doesn't exist either

Please help and be as detailed as possible, as I have no experience with programming.

Thanks,

MB

Hi ,

I know you must create a photorec.sig file in the photorec dir. Then enter the MTS signature in that file.

Try posting the first few lines of hex that you see in the MTS file. I will try to work it out for you. However I'm stuck at a similar point. I hope helping you helps me.

Cheers.

I created the file photorec.sig but how do I find out the .mts signature? Also, in the directions provided on the site it says:

Run fidentify with a file sample in parameter:
[kmaster@adsl ~]$ fidentify /home/kmaster/src/testfiles/sample.pfi
/home/kmaster/src/testfiles/sample.pfi: unknown

How do I do this? When I double click on fidentify and run it, it goes through my entire hard drive. I am totally lost at this point so any help would be appreciated.

Have you try using the m2ts and ts file famillies in FileOpts ?
