    Need help on recovering .MOV files from wedding event



    So, this is probably the 8th time that I have been using Magic Lantern united on my 5D Mark II and never had no problems till last night. I am not sure if it is ML or something else. So I downloaded the files last night from all my cards but the first card that I used for the wedding is not playing the files right. I am getting a green screen and damaged bits and pieces of the clips...ALL OF THEM that were on that cards. I played back a lot of the clips in camera and it seemed fine but now I am getting after downloading this type of video. Please watch video and tell me that I can save it somehow. I have already tried to use EASEUS Data recovery and tried to recover the files on the card but those files don't play. PLEASE HELP! Thank you

      No Sir, Since it was Magic Lantern..I cut and paste. What I should have done was Copy and Paste but I only had 3 cards and wanted to make sure I had an empty card while shooting so I uploaded to my Hard drive and when I got home to watch it..Most of the Videos ended up like the above and some I could not even play.

        That's bad. You should always use software that compares the hash sums once copied. Also, you should format a card once you've copied across. Cutting or deleting files doesn't really erase them from the card and could result in buffering problems or stopped recordings.

          What does most wedding photographers do in this situation? Refund all the money? I can imagine some couples trying to sue over this.

            Im not sure I understand, you said they playback in camera when you insert the card? Or they did, until you recorded over the data on the card. just trying to understand so to brainstorm.

              Is this the only place you have this issue? I had a issue with my P2 card shooting a funeral and what I ended up doing is cutting that scene out and editing it down making it match.
