Can It Be Saved? (Corrupt Video File from HM600)
I was using two Kingston 32Gig SD cards (in series recording format) in my HM600 to film a two-hour ceremony. As you know, the HM600 can't write a single video file greater than 3.71Gig in size, so it breaks them into separate video files.

I was recording in .mov FCP-native format and I dumped all the clips off to my hard drive for editing. One of the files appears to be corrupted and won't transfer off the card.

I can preview the clip from the finder, but I can't seem to bring it to my hard drive.

I tried running Apple's Disk Utility and it repaired the file structure, but still no luck.

I tried dragging the file into Adobe's Media Encoder to re-encode it into a readable file, but encoder crashed the first time, and the second time its preview window is showing a solid red screen.

I had a wide angle back-up camera running the whole time, so I do have a fall-back... but this file was the CU position and I was counting on using it.

Anyone have any ideas on how to proceed?

Do you think this Kingston card is defective? (It was brand spanking new, and I formatted it in the camera before I began filming).

Guess I'll start using the 2nd SD slot as back-up, instead of series, and learn to swap out cards quickly during long film segments.

Try playing the clip from the camera if you still have the card!
Check and see if JVC has any repair utility in the camera. Good Luck
