MP4 file recovered but not playing

Recommended Posts


I am needing to recover an mp4 file from an SSD card which was accidentally deleted, the SD card has not been used since. I thought I successfully recovered this wil Recuva - it's status is excellent with a green light and it states there were no overwritten clusters detected. 

I have gone to open the file, with several media players including VLC and the file does not play, The name and size of the file is correct, and states it is an mp4 but it's as if the file itself is corrupt/null. 


Is there anything I can do to rectify this? 

Thanks for your help
