    That file is just full of 0s.

    Nothing there to retrieve.

    Perl is a high level computer language, not an application program. So no.

    Perl scrips and grauonline didn't work for me, i have tried.

    Is it possible to make a new header, and would that help? Could a recovery service help me?

    This is the contents of the file you uploaded:
    Click image for larger version

Name:	hex_editor_blank_file.png
Views:	40
Size:	80.7 KB
ID:	12943

    There's no video there.

    You need to go back to the camera or memory card and try extracting/retrieving the file again. Different recovery software might help. There's nothing that can be done with the file you uploaded.

  9. There's nothing in your file except zeros. It's like providing a VHS cassette with no tape inside and asking if the video can be recovered.

  10. Hello,

    What you need to do is generate a disk image from your GoPro card, and then scan it with a video recovery tool.
    The disk image will be very big (roughly same as your card capacity) and will contain all information present on your card.
    If you don't find your footage in the disk image, it's that it hasn't been recorded or has been overwritten.

    Instructions to create disk image:
    http://aeroquartet.com/movierepair/dd%20for%20windows

    If you are on Mac, you can use Treasured's DeepMediaScan that integrates disk scanning, diagnostics and recovery:

    You may have gotten the spaces wrong. Open it's user guide in a separate window and try copying and pasting the commands into the terminal window.

    I have now succeded in creating a image of the card. The .iso file is about 32gb like the capacity of the memory card. But what can i now do with the .iso file?

  14. either open it with a program like winrar. Or mount it to a virrtual drive: e.g. virtual clonedrive or poweriso (first is the best as image drive, second better for more functions)

    Sorry, the filetype is not .iso, but .img

    What do I do with the .img file?

    Now if everything went fine, you should have a .img with a size similar to the disk capacity.
    If the disk still contains footage, the footage must now be inside this file also, and we can do a diagnostic of the file and hopefully, repair it.
    The .img file can now be used to create an extract that will be uploaded to Aero Quartet. This is explained in the Windows page.
    So far I understand the files must be in the .img. And you have to send the .img to Aero Quartet to recover it.
    They will recover the files inside it. So I don't think you have to mount the .img actually

    But I never used this method to recover. I always used software that recovered the files directly to your hard-drive, but I'm not sure it will work with big files. I hope it will work out well.
