Is telling you why you can't open the file, it has a bad file descriptor which means it is corrupt or damaged in some way.

Best guess is you have a problem with your SSD card. Run a full checkdisk over it and see what it says.

I say that card has reached its max writes, and is starting to drop data. replace it IMO.

 

Also though, could be the reader. Try using the camera as a reader, with a USB cable.

OR try re-watching said videos ON the camera.

Never had a problem with MOV in VLC, but you'd want QuickTimeAlternative, if you're not an itunes user.

If no itunes, dont let that insideous piece of player on your system, lol.

quick for mat is always better.

I suggest testing your camera, and seeing if it can use a better format than Fat.

SOME cameras can do NTFS, but most can do ExFAT.

 

In all honesty, if multiple files got corrupted, it COULD be the cheap reader; but its likely the card is toast. Run some tests and find out.

Basically put the card in a PC, format it to a file type (say, NTFS, FAT, FAT32, ExFAT), and then put it in the camera. See if it works.

 

Also, if your photos are usually quite large (AND you get stuck using FAT32), use at least 32KB clusters (I use 64KB). The complexity of the File Allocation table is so much less with larger clusters.

 

As for checks, http://www.netbookfreeware.com/h2testw-che...eadwrite-errors

I'd fill the card and verify TWICE to be sure its not buggered. ANY failure, and its hammer time. Literally.

yeah you can format to WHATEVER you like, but the camera needs to be able to write to it.

Try NTFS, and if the camera says 'no card' then reformat to ExFAT, if it still says no, FAT32.

Just if you're left with FAT32 make them 32KB clusters.

 

Because china dont give a shit, you might get NTFS or ExFAT support where 'big brands' dont. Worth a try, and no harm done.
