The correct link for the M2TS files is : http://www.sendspace.com/file/r8dsch

I will look forward to your reply this Monday.

I've browsed through the files but haven't tested the XML file yet. I'll do that tomorrow morning.

Alt: I am just curious, how are you generating the XML after analyzing the sample video files ? What is the process ?

It's simple. I just browse through the files in the editor built into R-Studio and search for common patterns. Usually they are simple to recognize. Then write the XML file.

Hello Alt: Did you have a chance to test the XML file? I am looking forward to it.

Try this one:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<FileTypeList>
<!-- Search for M4A files -->
<FileType id="1428" group="Multimedia Video" description="Panasonic HDC SD5 HD camera files" extension="m2ts">
<Signature offset="4" from="begin" count="1">\x47\x40\x00\x10\x00\x00\xB0\x11</Signature>
</FileType>
</FileTypeList>

Alt: I saved the file content you provided as FileTypes.xml and set the path in "User's file types" in Settings> Main. I only selected the m2ts but there are many files types that are pre-selected and I can not uncheck it. Anyway, after the scan on the SATA2 drive, the result(in the device view) showed a bunch of recovered partition (D:, Recongnized2, Reconnized8...Recognized 24) however the m2ts category under Multimedia Video is not even showing up, let alone any m2ts files. There were some mp4 files that were in the same directory as the m2ts files(before the drive got accidentally formatted) and those mp4 files are nicely being recovered (all of them and in their entirety) but not a single .m2ts file. What is going wrong ?

Do you have the latest version of R-Studio?
The Panasonic HDC SD5 HD camera files did appear in the Multimedia Video during my test. And check that no line breakes between the opening and closing elements of that line.

I have R-Studio Network Edition 5.2 (build: 130692/Mar 10 2010) There are no line breaks in the XML.
