I was recording an event in two half hour parts. The first half hour recorded and saved fine. However at the end of the second part when I pushed the button to make it stop recording an hour-vase icon appeared and did not go away for 20 minutes.
I disconnected the battery and inserted the SD card into my computer and transferred the files. The first played back fine, 3.2 gig in size. The second does not open in any player (Quick time, even Toast and ProTools can not do anything with it). The file is 2.14 gig in size, so the video would seam to be somewhere.
When I open the 'get info' tabs they are both- Kind: MPEG-4 movie. The More Info: section does differ. The first working clip as the following specs- Dimension: 1920x 1080, Codecs: H.264, AAC, etc. The second and non-working clip has no information at all.
I tried copying the file back onto the SD card but the camera does not recognize it.
It appears that it was not finalized or saved correctly. How do I convert this clip into working order?
