Recovering video from camera / SD after crash

Hi,

 

I am trying to recover video files from a GP3+ and a GP1 that were involved in a crash.

 

The GP3+ file plays but is misssing the last 30sec (approx.) of footage.

The GP1 file was corrupt using some recovery software I managed to get it to play but it also missing the last 30 secs.

 

Is the missing footage still in the camera or is this data lost? I have the original cameras / SDs. 

 

Thank you

Re: Recovering video from camera / SD after crash

Sorry to hear about that. If you have an SanDisk SD card they have 1 year software that comes with and it will recover any videos that are missing, broken, or even deleted.

its all sd card   writes to the card, internal memory  gopro uses only for settings and   firmware stuff
