Default Trying to Recover Video from SD Card

So I push Format on the video camera and deleted the holidays movies from Colorado before I could download them. Now I am trying to use the recovery that came with Corel, "PhotoRecovery Limited". But the mov. files keep coming up as error:2048 from Quicktime from the recovered files and the other video players would not play them either.

I also did a Recovery Image of the SD card that I am going to put on a DVD and see if some else can make them work.

Does anyone recommend another software?
Take it to a specialist?
Would saving the SD card image on a DVD help?
Or just give up?

The value of these movies is the kids in the snow and the grandparents wanted to see them...............And Yes, my dad did disown me that day.

Have you tried http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec ?

It's the best application I've ever seen for that type of thing.

As TCav mentioned, Photorec is a great tool for recovering files from corrupted media.

This topic comes up on a regular basis. So, I recently made a "Sticky Post" about it with information about Photorec, as well as some of the alternatives available. I didn't include the word Video in it's Subject Line. But, I just now changed that, since the same recovery techniques that apply to still image files also apply to video files. You'll find it here:

What other movie players did you try? Media player Classic does a pretty good job with things that Windows Media Player won't deal with. The Quick Time Alternative program is available with MP classic, and is something you might try.
Have you looked at Properties of the recovered files, do determine if they are indeed complete movies? Sometimes recovery software will only actually recover header data, and not the actual files.

I will try(but hope do it right?), because I do see the "mov." icon, but when I go to play, it just gives me the error message.

Firstly, Stop accessing the SD card. If the files has been deleted, there's still a chance that the data is still there, but has just been set to be overwritten by new data. Try recovering files with Card Data Recovery software. It can easily recover and restore data such as video, music, audio and other document.

Memory card error is common problems in various sd cards and cf cards. I took a closer look at my little SD memory card. It has a sliding lock on it to protect data. Check to see if the card works when you slide that lock up or down. Read more about memory card:
