Recover mgp4 file on Memory Stick
Posted on 2013-06-08
My camera battery failed and shutdown the camera before I was able to stop/save the video I was shooting. I am presuming the video is written, but without an entry in the file system since file was never closed. Any recovery tools that will work for this situation? I have not written to the memory stick (sony camera) since this incident. W7 chkdsk /r with the camera connected as USB device indicates files and folders complete - no problems, bad clusters, etc.
Did a web search and have read reviews for Wondershare Photo Recovery on CNET. Their trial product identifies 1 mpg4 file, no preview available. File name corresponds with another time period - 780... instead of 934... (another clip from same day). Trial product does not restore. Didn't think it was worth purchasing the version...
