I have a video on my Canon HG21 video camera that is corrupt. I can’t detect it on my laptop, so I can’t transfer it. The beginning of the video plays okay on the camera, but when it gets to a certain part it freezes (it’s about 1 and a half hours long). Is there any software I can download to fix this corrupt file? I’ve tried photorec, but it only recovered every other video I deleted and didn’t fix the corrupt one, and Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery, which didn’t recover anything at all from my camera, not even the deleted videos. Please tell me there’s something I can do? This just so happens to be the most important video I had. I don’t even know how it corrupted, everything was working fine until now.
John, I downloaded both those softwares, but both require me to open the file with their program. I can’t do that because I can’t detect the m2ts video file on my laptop. It just doesn’t appear. Is there anything else I can do?
Google “transport stream repair tools”.
It’s been a while since I’ve needed one of these. Last time I had to use one the tools to use were tsremux and tsmuxer. There appear to be newer tools that are better. Take a look at MPEG2Repair and TSDoctor. The format your file is in is an MPEG Transport Stream, so you want to look at tools that can repair transport streams.
