don't have Nero, and the 1st 4 download links i tried on that imgburn page didn't take me to a download...but they sure took me to pop ups and advertisements.

installed imgburn, and no items match my search, whether recovered on flash drive, OG card, or C drive

not really sure what to do...the iso thing takes me to two choices that don't work either ('change volume level' and 'display IFO Layer blah blah')

1st thing, make an image of the card as a DVD ISO image, keep it safe and off line

2nd, try a check disk and if it has errors, try a repair... sometimes media fails and effs up our recordings.

I lost 2 concerts that way from the camcorder (allowed video) and it still pisses me off to this day


ok, the only reason why I mentioned ImageBurn was to make an ISO backup of the contents of your memory card you are trying to salvage. Which may in itself be an overkill step to do but this utility is not going to recover any files for you if that is how you are trying to use it. Basically whatever files you tell it to compress into an ISO it will do that as it does not have any limitations on that end to my knowledge.

It sounds like furburger may lack the needed technological savvy required to make a valid attempt at restoring the card's files. 

Furburger, are you completely opposed to getting some help? 

You do not necessarily need to make an ISO image of the card but you definitely should begin by copying whatever you can OFF OF THE CARD prior to making any attempts to alter data just in case something hits the fan.  Backup, backup, backup.

I am willing to help.  If you want it then shoot me a private message and I can try for you.

you guys hit the nail on the head (but I did learn quite a bit...I need to learn how to make movies next....I've over 3TB of footage shot just since '11...lots of multi-cam tripod too)

the 2496 guy offered to try for me via PM, if that doesn't work, I'd be happy to pass it your way.

I'm just hoping that the path of the soundcheck somehow got flawed, but that the show is still there, as the files were finalized months before I dropped the deck.

thanks so much, you folks are awesome!!!

(p.s. if anyone wants to make films, I've got a lot of stuff by a LOT of artists (Black Keys, Soundgarden, Black Angels, PUSA, ZZ Top), external audio and the whole 9 yards...I just don't know how to put the cake together!)

Thank you. This saved me the last time the recorder did not write a header file and would not open in audio software.
Everyday is a gift. Enjoy each one!

I can't get this to work. Can anyone give me a hand? I've got a Drive-By Truckers file that I assume has a bad header. I can provide a download link.

Sorry to reopen an old thread, but a buddy of mine has 13 corrupted files from a Sony M10.  I have tried the Audacity raw importing, FLACIng the file, sound forge, cdwav, the tool in this thread, the Sound Devices tool and nothing will open/import/correct these files into WAV files.

Anyone have any more current ideas/tool/tricks?  Trying to get at least one of these to open, and absolutely zero luck... kind of assuming a bad card, but the files are proper size and lengths, but just wont open in anything with any tool.

If only using micro sd card perhaps card not seated properly?Or bogus card?

Also if deck is powered down while access light is active you can corrupt files.

Upload the files to wetransfer and ill try all available tricks i know.

Maybe testdisc / photorec?

The files are there. They have no music in them and even the header tool isn't allowing them to open. It is like the deck was on mute

What error code does your M10 display about those files?
