MTS files from Sony NEX camera

#1 Post by wenetu »

I need to recover a 2TB hard drive full of video files from a NEX-5 (AVCHD 1.0) and a NEX-5N (AVCHD 2.0) cameras.
I've used PhotoRec 6.14, and it recover some .m2ts files, but video files are merged into a few big big files (one is 4gb), containing videos that before was in separated files.
Media Players (VLC or MPC) start playing the files thinking it last only the time of the first clip, so after that they keep playing but the time bar is at the end, and sometimes they crash.

What happened to your disk, why did you use photorec first ?
Weren't you able to recover filesystem, before trying carving ?
