Someone deleted the contents of their SDHC card and asked me if I could try and recover their recent wedding videos.
I recovered all the videos to hard disk. Now I want to try and restore the files I recovered back to the camcorder sdhc card so they can play them back from the camcorder.
I have recovered all the avchd in the STREAM folder.
I have recovered all of the the cpi files in the CLIPINF folder and they mach the numbers of the avchd files.
I have recovered one _0000.MPL file in the PLAYLIST folder.
Recovered files _0000.MPL to _0000_7.MPL
Recovered 5x JPG files
Folder: PRIVATE: CVINFO
Recovered _PLATTR.BAK to _PLATTR_10.BAK
Recovered _SHINFO.BAK to _SHINFO_5.BAK
Now I tried copying all the above (in correct folder) to the sdhc card but the camera says there are no clips to view.
I noticed online (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:AVCHD_actual_file_structure.jpg) that the avchd file structure has INDEX.BDM & MOVIEOBJ.BDM files but I found none on the sdhc card. Not sure if this is implemented with Canon.
Which files are essential for the restoration of the images to the sdhc card and which can I ignore. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
