Video file recovery


Recommended Posts

I had a power out on my A7Sii mid-shot.  The file is unreadable on my MacBook Pro - however, it is 850mb and plays back in camera from the SD card.


There was no XML file recorded due to the sudden power loss.


I have tried the in-camera repair option, without success.  The fact I can view the video in camera must mean the information is there?

Thanks, but my file is MP4 and not MTS, so I can't 'show contents'.  The software link didn't work either.

handles mp4's.... or so it says on the website.

link is still good, at least for me... here it is again...    http://grauonline.de/cms2/?page_id=5#download


"Our repair utility can repair and fix broken or damaged video files (MOV, MP4, 3GP, M4V) that do not play in your media player.

What exactly means REPAIR? Repair means that only video and audio portions can be repaired that are not lost: On some of your corrupt files, it MAY NOT repair anything at all, on some files it MAY repair some video portions, and on some other files it MAY repair both video and audio portions (It fully depends on the grade of corruption)."



good luck, whatever you do...

    • You will see approximately NO difference when shooting stills - if you shoot lossy compressed RAW at full speed you might start to build a buffer backlog, and that will clear a little faster with CFeA cards like the Lexar Gold or Sony Tough. But it is marginal. You WILL see a difference if your shoot 1000+ images and download them with a fast reader to a local SSD - they will download much faster than even the fastest SDs. But that‚Äôs a marginal reason to get them (unless you are in the habit of shooting thousands of images - I do that more on the A1 for obvious reasons) The CFeA cards are pretty tough - I have some Sony and some Lexar, all 160GB - but I mainly got them for the A1 - I use them in the A7RV because I already have them. I don‚Äôt think you really need CFeA cards (buy them if you want, though). I‚Äôd be tempted to get a couple of 128GB or 256GB Sony Tough G SD cards instead. The G cards are worth it because they enable things like high frame rate 4k, and they download faster. Basically, I‚Äôd recommend fast UHS-2 SD cards (300 read / 299 write is good) over slower UHS-1 cards. Whatever you do, don‚Äôt buy 90MB/s cards! I like the Tough cards, but like you said the Lexar Gold are much cheaper in CFeA - I bought a couple to try them, and to encourage Sony to drop their price!
    • I have been shooting Sony for 5 years (A7r3,¬†¬†A73, A6400).¬†¬†Taking delivery of the A7r5 in a few weeks.¬†¬†I will NEVER (never say never!), shoot 8k and am primarily a still pro shooter.¬†¬† I plan to get 2, Lexar Professional 160GB CFexpress Type A Gold Series cards Up to 900MB/s.¬†¬†The Sony tough cards with the same spec are close to $200 more for a pair.¬†¬†IS THIS speed spec overkill considering I'm shooting primarily still, and occasional 4K videos?¬† Thanks in-advance for any replies.¬†
    • The Sigma 105mm macro lens DG DN Art is on Ver.02 2023.01.26. Though I haven't upgraded that lens, I have upgraded a couple of other recent Sigma lenses and it is quite simple using the Sony camera and detailed on the Sigma website. Do a quick Google search and you will find the information you seek. Link:¬†https://www.sigma-global.com/en/lenses/a020_105_28/?tab=support&local=firmware
