GoPro ruined my trip

Had about 30 minutes of good whale shark video. Then every single video I took since then on the island and in the water won't play. It's just black. One of the whale shark's tail hit my chest and threw me back about 8ft WHILE THE DIVE MASTER WAS FILMING IT. Nothing but NO VIDEO. My golf cart tour around the island. NO VIDEO. Have tried two professional video repair programs to no avail. The video sizes are there. One is almost 2GB. Yet no video. Nothing wrong with the SD card. A Google search showed this is fairly common with these cameras.

 

I can't get that special dive back. Just sick over this. Time to consider a SeaLife HD+.
