    My DP was shooting for me with an AF-100. In the middle of a take the battery went dead. It looks like the footage is there (I can play it back in camera) but it will not transcode into Final Cut Pro 7. When I try I get the error message "contains unsupported media or has an invalid directory structure. Please choose a folder whose directory structure matches supported media." What do I do? I notice SanDisk offers "SanDisk Rescue Pro" File Recovery Utility - has anyone tried this? (I don't know whether it's relevant or not, but the card is question is a SanDisk.) Any other suggestions? TIA, and yes, I have searched the Forum and found no answers.

    Try transcoding another way. ClipWrap is a good option, & doesn't need the complete file structure, just the .mts

    If you can play it in camera, have you tried copying the clip to another card?

    Aloha,

    I had some trouble with sd cards with my gh2 a few weeks ago. I had run till the battery went down and lost the last file. I looked everywhere and tried quite a few data recovery apps. just when i had given up, i found that panasonic had some sd recovery software. it was 2 apps, one to recover and one to rebuild the file structure...here is the link:

    hope it helps you. BTW These are actually for their pro line cameras not the consumer gh-cams i think- it worked for me ..hope it works for you.

    Hi,

    Try to import directly .MTS files into Final Cut Pro (make sure that the MTS importer component is installed. Or get it from here: https://eww.pass.panasonic.co.jp/pro...d.htm#avccamip )

    If it doesn't work, your unplayable AVCHD footage can be recovered using a movie repair service.
    You can also preview the footage with this web-based tool: http://mp4repair.org
