    My recorder writes to an SD card. I had an event where the recorder (Sandisk V-Mate) lost power before being properly stopped. It left behind is a 250MB MP4 file that appears to need a header written to it. I have tried various Fixer and Repair programs on it. They appear to be geared towards repair of truncated downloads and not my issue. Any advise on how I can get my video? Working with XP.

  2. Not sure if VKC can read MP4 tho but i know can read like 95% of the available codec in the world.

    So my advice:
    try to reencode your video with VLC because VLC can read files where parts are missing so try it and try the H264 codec

    VLC plays a video of 0:00 video length at the status line. No error messages.

    Looked at it with a hex editor and compared to to some valid files. Appears to have a proper header and no footer.

    I tried pasting a footer from a valid MP4. VLC plays a 0:00 minute video.

    I tried pasting a header and footer from a valid MP4. VLC - Unrecognized format for 'Both.MP4' after chewing on it for a minute.

    All the utilities I found on the net to repair truncated files do not support MP4. Anybody know of one.
