Recovered files in crashed HDD won't play

Recommended Posts

I had a security camera that filmed some important footage that later on the HDD crashed

Most of the files are restored, but they only appear in jpeg format instead of MJPEG as they should.

Now i wonder how i can do to view these files again


My problem is that my MJPEG are now in JPEG not watch or viewable


I've tried some codecs and several video players such as




Windows Media Player

Quick Time



Codecs tried




Converters tried

Any video converter

OJOSoft Total video converter


Encoder program tried



I even tried to rename file endings and such
