SRW filetype. Samsung RAW

#1 Post by Johanes » 12 Sep 2013, 00:07

After reading the v6.14 release notes, I've noticed that there is much work to be done around RAW files, since some of these are gathered in TIF filetype. My problem is about Samsung RAW files, SRW.

Here we have the fidentify output:

Code: Select all

fidentify _SAM4427.SRW 
_SAM4427.SRW: tif
But PhotoRec is not recovering anything.

This is the

Code: Select all

hexdump -C _SAM4433.SRW | head
of 3 different SRW files:

Code: Select all

I have tried to add the extension following this guide step by step, and checking just the Own custom signatures option, but nothing happened. This is the signature, is it right?

Code: Select all

SRW 0 "MM.*.................V...........f.............2.........v.J...........i.............,SAMSUNG        .NX10      "
The program and de HDD are both working since I've obtained thousands of jpg files from the unit.

I don't know how to keep working...

Can you send me an unmodified SRW file ?

The 3 "hexdumps" I've posted above are from unmodified SRW files, anyway, here you have:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/zo717ssq8rxjlnu/_SAM4139.SRW

And another problem I've just noticed this morning (I'm in GMT +02:00), the mp4 video files from this camera are also not recovered by PhotoRec. Again the same problem, my own extension hasn't worked. Can I send you the mp4 file link by private message?

I have launch PhotoRec 6.14 on the sample file, it's recovered perfectly as a .tif, the recovered file may be larger than the original.
BTW the signature you have used is wrong, you can use instead "SRW 0 4d 4d 00 2a 00 00 00 08".
PhotoRec may failed to recover your files because of data fragmentation or if the media has been wiped (content has been overwritten)
