I was sent a file from a friend to see if I could get it recovered. He sent me 2 files:
Original.DAT - 600MB
Original.DMV - 129KB
Using MediaInfo on the DAT file, all I can see is that it is in QuickTime format and FileExtension_Invalid: mov qt
I've tried using VCDGear v3.55 to convert dat -> mpeg but I get this message:
I also tried using isobuster with no luck. Haven't used it before but the conversion I tried gave me a file with no data (size = 0).[ VCDGEAR PROCESSING LOG ]

Setting multi-file output convention to '_%02d'
WARNING: Specified DAT file has an invalid XA header signature.
Could not locate MPEG stream.
VirtualDub says Cannot Parse Original.DAT
Does anyone have other programs or ideas?

Just tried Video Repair Software by Grau GmbH with a working sample and was only able to get a video with a gray screen.
I did try uploading the video to an online converter at www.mp4repair.org and I was actually able to see some thumbnail images of the video. Great! But..... they want to charge $59 to convert the video. Not happening. It does give me some hope that somebody out there has a solution for me since an online repair tool could produce better results than I can myself in less than a minute.
