How To Repair A Corrupted Video From An Sd Card

25 September 2011 - 12:51 AM

I am a Panasonic GH2 camera user that recently recorded an event in Maui. During the event there was a power failure to my camera which ended up with a corruption of the MTS file I was recording at the moment. The 30 minute file is still on my SD card but unreadable due to the fact it wasn't finalized.
I've tried several recovery software companies that advertise on the net but not a single one can handle this problem. Most recovery sftw if able to recover deleted files. But this problem is different. All of the data is there it just needs an ending or finalization. Please help if anyone knows of a way to recover this type of problem. I'm sure it is a problem many of us will have eventually using these type of cameras.
As a side note, before using HD I had a small application program that was written in house by a company called Serious Magic that would repair these type of problems very easily for AVI video files. So it's possible, just need to be able to handle the MTS file format.
