Help! Corrupted video file problem!

Hi, I filmed a music recital yesterday and accidentally formatted the SD card after the fact. Long story. Anyhow, I used CGS Security's PhotoRec program to recover the overwritten files. Most of them I was able to get back. However, there are three files that when played in VLC Player play just fine (although the player shows 0:00 as the time duration for the clips), but when imported into Adobe Premiere CS5, the clips are very short and missing most of the content. One was even totally out of sync and the video all choppy. I converted the files into various other formats using All Video Converter (I normally use Media Converter 8, but it's on the fritz), and one of the videos came out better in its entirety (albeit it was laggy in Premiere), but the other two are still short and missing footage. Can someone help me figure out a workaround? Once again, the files play just fine when not in the NLE. Thanks.

Did you trying converting them to MPEG2? And then reconverting to whatever you normally use.

I just tried your suggestion of converting to mpeg2, but the resulting video was the shortened video.
