Problem with opening the videos.

Hello, 

 

I've been on holiday and I have recordered about 60 gb of videos.

I got Go Pro Hero 4 Black edition, my memory card is Samsung Evo Plus ( 64 gb ) 

My problem is about that I can't open it in any players, Only  first 5 videos can be played.

I got some problem about camera , because i saw the message on the screen ,, SD ERROR '' two times but I've restarted the camera and everything was OK ( Makes the recording properly even the longer one.). I made a recording in 1920p x 48FPS 

I try to use many video repair's program but it isn't work.

Every file got the weight ( from 600 mb to 2 gb ). I think it is problem with the heads (There's no information about the file like bitrate, resolution etc in properties , so that's why any players can't recognize the video format. 

Is it any possibilites to save this videos ? Can I makes the changes manually like insert the video information to the file ?

 

Best Regards,

Lucas

Re: Problem with opening the videos.

The problem is your SD card. The Evo is not a good card for GoPro cameras. You can try searching online for a file recovery program but I don't know if that will help as the files most likely weren't properly closed.

Please see this list for cards that have been tested and verified to work with your camera.

Re: Problem with opening the videos.

1. You can try to open the files through VLC player • Open>VLC>Media>convert/save • Next, add input files or streams • Press Convert or Save • Provide the file name • Select the desired Codec • Press “Edit Selected Profile” button • Select to add a new profile • Next, press Start 2. Another method is to replicate video File to Gain Accessibility 3. The last sure-shot effective solution is to repair videos using a video repair software 4. If the SD card is corrupt then apply some useful tricks to repair corrupt SD card

Re: Problem with opening the videos.

the first five work but after that are they currrupted, when on your computer do you  see thumbnail  shots of  the video or just a  clapperboard?
