mp4 files from GoPro found as unusable mov files

#1 Post by nrigler » 31 Dec 2014, 17:15

Greetings!
I used this wonderful program to find files my son accidentally deleted from a Sony Mini SD card he used in a GoPro Hero 3+ camera. It found the .jpg files just fine, but the video files appeared as .mov and are not playable. When I click on them a black screen comes up in Quick Time Player. Is there any way to recover these as .mp4 files?

Unfortunately the video files generated by latest GoPro are highly fragmented. PhotoRec can't recover them.
Some data recovery service including my own http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/Service_ ... nn%C3%A9es can recover them.

The page you linked me to is in French - does there happen to be an English version? Thanks!
