this is amazing, just yesterday i was on this thread through google and saw the last post was way back in 2008 and thought, damn...i won't find help here....and just again i jst came back to check out of curiosity and BAM!!! people are back on this thread posting...i'm really hoping i get some help from you guyz here...
Issue: well known by now... had some video files...got deleted by mistake...used couple of software to recover it...Sucess! recovered few files but then, no player in the world would recognize the format...so back to sad days!!! lol
now, i've been doing a lot of research since last few days, i came across bunch of similar posts around on net, and ended up messing up with the files myself. Been playing around with Winhex to see if i could do something with the header just the way 'wheel4hummer' described it earlier posts (btw, thanks wheel4hummer, u jst gave me some hope when i read your posts).
Now, i shot one more movie from my phone just to compare the header file with the one that i recovered. Here is the difference, the beginning of the header file is identical, but its the end of the file which shows the difference. 'Recovered' file is missing a whole lot of information that 'working' file shows. I tried to copy paste that part of the header file (from working to recovered file) and to my surprise i could see a green screen (probably distorted images???) against nothing earlier....That raised my hopes again. But then, recovered video was at least 7 minutes long while the 'manipulated' file shows play time of only 10 seconds!!!
this is where i need your help guys...! i just want to know if i'm copying the right part of the header file form working to recovered file? The videos i recovered were kind of personal and hence can't post it here. BUT, here are the images of the header file i captured to give you some idea about what i'm talking about
here is beginning of header file of non-working file
here is end of the header file of non-working file
here is beginning of header file of working file
and just for your reference, posting a working video file captured from my phone
any help would be greatly appreciated guys....
thanks alot in advance....
