Damaged audio file

My Zoom fell during recording and the file is damaged, won't open in Vegas or in WMP.

Any suggestions on an application I can use to open it and transcode it into something useable?

Re: Damaged audio file

a H4? Not saying it can't be recoverable but I had the same issue with a first gen zoom h4, it was on a minitripod maybe 5cm above the floor and fell over and gone was my audio, also the file was still on the card but no way to open it.

Re: Damaged audio file

Try to try opening this file as a RAW audio file in Sound Forge Pro. You will need to set correct actual parameters of recorded WAV,

Thanks, Juris, I don't have Sound Forge, but imagine it's downloadable.

Jeff, try Audacity. It's free and a decent audio processing program.
