  1. Ok so following replies I took a look at the video files and the XML files with a text editor and compared the playable video files to the "corrupt" one. **(First of all dont use text editor on a mac - these files are too big for it - I used Hex Fiend)** Technically the XML file that the A7S lays down at the end of recording is just a copy of the instructions that the camera writes at the end of the video file to make it playable. All my good video files had their XML file text in their file content at the end. The XML files seem to be just confirmation that the instructions have been written

  3. Thanks for the replies. This might be a A7s version 1 problem then - perhaps they sorted it in version 2. If the battery fails during video recording in my A7s (1) it doesnt write the closing instructions (which I assume is all the XML file is. Without the XML file I cant play the XAVC-S video with any player or in any edit suite. Perhaps I could just write my own XML file by copy and pasting the contents of a previous one in text editor ?
  4. When the battery dies during recording XAVC-S video on the Sony A7S the camera does not have time to write the associated XML file that is needed to access that file.The video is saved as a corrupt file. The video is there but it cant be read without its XML twin. Does anyone have a way of recovering these video files and making them readable ? There is one online company I have found that will recover these "corrupt" files but it costs a lot. As this must be a common problem surely there is a piece of software I can get that is cheap or free.
