View Full Version : Incompatible Card with half a day's footage on it

I shot a whole bunch of footage the other day on a 32GB card in an HVX. At some point my sound person asked to see playback on the last thing we'd shot. I went into VCR mode and pressed play on the last clip, only to have the clip (roughly 15 minutes of interview footage) stop playing back after a few seconds. I tried pressing play again, the onboard screen went black and back to the thumbnails screen instantly. I decided to try turning the camera off and turning it on again, and when I did, the card came back with an Incompatible Card error (first time I have ever encountered this). I have tried the card in a couple of HVXs and a G4 with a cardbus reader and had no luck recovering my footage. This is a huge problem as the shoot was a nightmare to schedule and the client is going to be super pissed if we lost the stuff we appear to have lost. Can anyone help me? I'm desperate.

have you tried offloading the mxf folder(s) and converting from that folder?
