I have a corrupted micro SD card. With huge trying I could to recover it's data using recuva tool, but now my files are corrupted also. They are video file with some famous extensions such as 3gp, mp4, flv, wmv, avi. My video file players are VLC and Media player classic. The media player classic says, "can not render the file" and VLC doesn't show anything.

Is there a way to repair these video files?

I would strongly suggest you the applicaton called GetDataBack for NTFS / FAT, you can download it from the following link: http://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm

You might find it a bit costly but it's worth the price, it has saved my life on several occasions!

Bare in mind though (as the gentleman before me already mentioned) if the USB stick / hard drive is corrupted some of the files GetBackData will recover will be faulty (eg.: part of the mp3 file will be static, missing frames in movie files) but it can still recover most of the things from your USB / hard drive.

The chances are that when you were recovering them tiny bits of the code was eater not there or left behind. This will make the video corrupt and it will be almost impossible to repair the code, even with hours and hours of work the most you could get would be able to get would be a few seconds in total, and these will not be in one piece. Most of them you wouldn't even be able to recover at all. Sorry but I think you may of lost them unless some one else has any suggestions.
