A failed windows install made a partition with my data inacessable, but now i can access it using a program called GetDataBack. When i copy video files from the "bad" partition and try to play them in VLC It says that the AVI file is broken and that seeking wont work. I let it repair and after a few seconds my video plays and i can seek, however i have to repair the video file each time i want to watch it. The videos work in mplayer as well, but I cant seek. Is there a way to premenantly "repair" the files. Also, all of the video files that i can see on my damaged drive are .AVI and they could have been mpg before and they were all changed? or mabey they are all .AVI and the mpgs are in another folder, either way the playback should not be affected?
