Repair GoPro File - September 15, 2014, 07:00 PM

I'm hoping somebody can help me repair a damaged gopro file (mp4). I wrecked at VIR today and would like to see what was captured. I'm getting the 2048 error message from Quicktime and the windows players won't play it either. I've done a bit of googling but haven't found anything that seems certain to work. Hopefully this is a been there done that topic for somebody. Thanks.

Is this after converting? If the gopro software won't load it up, I'm not sure what will.

I spoke a little too soon. I found a youtube video that was generally helpful. Apparently the impact ejects the card a little bit and doesn't allow the recording to complete properly. If you insert the card back into the go pro you can pretty much fix it. You get an SoS indicator and hit either button; pretty simple. Unfortunately, the last few seconds of my lap didn't stick; the video ends several turns before my off. Thankfully this and a few broken bits on my bike are the extent of my problems.

Well if there isn't video proof of your crash then it didn't really happen........

I like that logic; maybe I'll find all the bike damage is gone when I unload tomorrow.

Yeah I might've had something like that; lowsided coming through T17 at VIR; was on the throttle and the rear just stepped out; tested my leathers on the track and then tumbled out in the grass a ways.

Did you get on the brakes at all before coming in to the turn?

No injuries from the 2 crashes I had that day. Vid was of the second. I didn't even have a bruise.

I never really got on the brakes. I did start squeezing, but not nearly enough to really slow down. I had just put on fresh pads and bled the lines, so I was probably a bit too nervous about locking up the front that I didn't really use enough of the suspension.

Back to the OP...I was wondering is this the Hero 3, or an older version? I'm still a bit confused on what the problem was - how the card popped out while writing. Link to the youtube video?

It's the older Hero. From my bit of internet research, if the recording isn't completed properly then the file gets messed up; when there's an impact involved I believe the card can move just enough to screw things up; it doesn't come completely out or anything close to that; just enough to cause the recording to stop improperly. It's great that the file can generally be repaired, just too bad the last 15 - 20 seconds are sacrificed as that's typically the part with the wreck.

Ok, makes sense. The impact is what bumps the card out of position so it can no longer right? Or did yours cut off before the impact? It sounds like new GoPros don't have to worry. I know at least for the Hero 2 and Hero 3, the memory card clicks into place and seems fairly secure. I usually mount mine on the gas tank, up top, so if the camera impacts, then I'm having a really bad day. Were you running camera on a side fairing or something?
