On a recent gig we discovered that daisy chaining a FW800 CF card reader through an external hard drive occassionally yeilded .mov files that can't be read. We're talking 6 files out of 450.
I believe the data is there as some files are 17GB in size. I hope it's just header data that needs to be restored. What utilities can I use to try to restore these clips?

No one has any ideas on how to restore a .mov file?

My first thought would be the typical file repair software that would be used for any Windows file that had become damaged. (Assuming you're on a Windows platform.) I'm not sure you would need software specifically for .MOV files. Have you tried that?
It's a KILLER connection!

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll hit this over the weekend.
BTW, we were on a Mac system.

I had to use this software back in Jan 2012. It worked and saved me. http://grauonline.de/cmsimple2_6/en/...Repair_Utility

Grauonline restored the video, however the audio drifts over time.
It's in synch at the head (as evidenced by a slate) but is off in the middle of the take and way off by the end.
