Thanks in advance
Hi all, please help me recover this 2009 Christmas video, I will give what info I think is important and hopefully someone can help.
It was filmed on a JVC Everio HDD 30GB hybrid model purchased sometime in 2008 or 2009.
The movie clip is named MOV068.MOD, it is 1.35GB in size and was created on12/25/09. There are two other files listed under the movie file. They are MOV068.MOI and PRG001.PGI.
Last night I was backing up my camcorder and dumbphone files, pics and videos onto a laptop to be burned to dvd/cd/whatever.
I was able to copy all the pics and videos to the laptop without any problem except this one. There were 60+ videos on this camcorder that saved to the laptop with no problem but with this file I keep getting an error message saying "Can't read from the source file or disk.".
When I open the file in Windows Media Player it plays fine up until about 1:23 (one minute & twenty three seconds). At this time the video starts skipping then it will freeze up and give error messages. The strange thing is, at first the video would play through to the end (all 20+ minutes) even though it gets real choppy for the approx. 5-10 seconds after 1:23. It seems now it locks up the camcorder at the 1:23 mark.
I have tried opening the file in Windows Live Movie Maker (hoping I could cut out the bad part but it doesnt work), Windows Media Player on Windows 7 and Windows XP and some other generic program that came with the camcorder.
Can this be fixed and if so, how? Go figure the one video messed up is a Christmas morning video with my wife and little kids and wifey is MAD at me! lol... Thanks for any help.
