    Help Accidentally formatted SD card need my movies back

    Just got back from holiday, while i was there i accidentally formated (in camera) my SD card, i removed the card straight away not wanting to write on it again, and thought i'll recover my photo's when i get home.

    I've tried loads of programs that are up in the usual places but none of them recover working movies that are on the card, all the photo's have been recovered, but although i can recover 6 movies from the card, none of them will play.

    Any ideas welcome, cheers.

    From a google search - no idea how good or if it is bloated.

    What about trying to repair the video if you got them off, might just be missing a header or something.

    Tried that mate with a few different programs, no joy.

    I've recovered lots of accidentally deleted photo's in the past without a problem, i thought video files would be recovered the same way but apparently not.

    EDIT i've managed to sort it out using the video repair program purpleanimal posted 'HD Video Repair Utility', if anyone needs any help in future with this just ask, and if you need the full version of the util PM me.

    Thanks all

    Holiday movies?

    People tried to help you, it's only fair that you post them.
