    Hi ,
    i'-m here to ask a good help from you. Some days ago my inspire 1 crash and the camere now is not working.
    During the last fly i was shooting a video so after the crash the recording file was corrupted.
    Now I read that a way to recover the file is to turn on the camera and automatically the file is recovered.
    Unfortunately at this moment i'm no able to turn on my camera.
    I was thinking a way is to send my file to someone that transfer the file on another inspire1 and camera in order to repair the file.
    Here my question, would one of you be available to do this attempt for help me?
    I'm upload the file so if someone can help me i'll can send him the link to the file.
    Thanks in adavance to all who want to help me in this moment.
    Manuele

    You seem to have forgotten to read his post... His I1 has crashed and the camera is dead (also why the video didn't get stopped properly).

    Hi KnightDrone, for what i Read the process should be the same with inspire too.
    Thanks in advance for your support.
    I'll send the file via dropbox shortly.

    There is an application that is made to close stranded files like the one you are talking about. It's called video repair.
    I had a GoPro that crashed from 30 feet up and got all the files back in great working order.

    More info here: http://www.videohelp.com/tools/Video-Repair-Tool

    Description here:
    rau GbRs Video Repair Tool can repair and fix broken or damaged video files (mp4,mv4,mpg,mov,jpg,dvc,3gp) that do not play in your media player. Repairs video files that are truncated, broken, corrupt or damaged. Repairs video files that do not play in QuickTime or Windows Media player. Repairs movies that were not finalized by the camera. The repair does not depend on a valid/correct container format - the raw video and audio stream data is fully automatically reconstructed. Supports non-broken reference movies for finding missing movie meta-data and parameters. $40 for 1 repair and $120 for unlimited repairs. Full description.

    Hi guys,

    I came from the phantom 2 with GoPro to the inspire so initially I was forgetting to stop recording and I lost a few files. I lost quite an important one and I went hunting for some way to recover the file. I found this article. It's all free of charge and I have now used it 3 times and 3 times its been 100% successful.

    I dont understand this file download. I download it, go to run it, and it just flashes a black prompt box for a second then goes away...I didnt crash mine, put the sd card back in, recorded a short video, and it didnt work. the video shows 0kb, but was 11 minutes long I just forgot to shut off the camera before shutting off the inspire

    This is a command-line program, as evidenced by the post on Skypixel and the screenshot on its homepage. It does not have a GUI component as far as I know.

    Does anyone have an example of a busted file? I'd be interested in running it through things like VirtualDub to see if it can do similar things.

    This file shows 0kb. I've tried using another program out there where I had to double the file size by merging a duplicate with the original in the command prompt , then run it through this program that only let you save 50% of the original file for the free version (hence the prompt run-around). But even this program said the file could not be fixed. I'll try to think or the program name

    Yes, I have the busted file

    Hi Morgan, I have a few problematic files, if you're still up for trying your hand at repairing them. The issue in my case was not a matter of forgetting to click stop record before turning off the Inspire. Not sure what the issue is, but a portion of these files can be viewed. I know this is an older thread, but if you're up for it, I'd love to see if you can fix. I have a Mac and haven't found a solution that would work on my machine yet... Let me know what you think, thanks!

    Hi Alan, I've tried DJIFIX but without luck. Do you recall which setting you used? I believe I tried Type 2 as recommended inside the command line, but the result is just smears and blocks of color. Does it matter that I used .MOV Format?

    Sorry you had to experience an idiot doing such a thing, but I'm not sure why you would post this in the InspirePilots forum... It has nothing to do with the product and your cellphone footage shows reference frames, nothing thats recoverable. Far as I can see, the footage wouldn't help much anyway.

    Not being mean, this doesn't seem the place for you to post what you did.

    Everyone: PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME to help you repair your corrupted DJI video files. It's 2016 now and I no longer have any way or process to do this. Contact DJI for help. Thx. -Chris
