If you still have those cameras, can you provide me with very short (3-4 secs) samples of their movies? I'll try to create a Known File Type description file for each. Maybe, scanning with them would find more?

That would be great! Because of the limited upload I have uploaded the test movies here:

Regarding the .mts files, I have remuxed the old ones to .ts file for compability with my digital Receiver at that time, afterwards I only renamed them to .ts or .m2ts.

Thany you very much for your efforts!

Sorry for not be clear enough, but I need several (2 at least) files of the same type to be able to find their signatures. I need to find the same parts in all files of the same type, so I need to compare them.

Sorry, I should have known that, because I have tried on my own to create a signature file.

I have just uploaded another movie of each type! In Addition I muxxed the MTS file to a TS file, if it needs a different signature?

Thank you so much in advance!

I don't know, I'll see that. I downloaded the files and will start analyze them soon.

Meanwhile the Disks were at a "Professional Data Rescue Service", but unfortunately that was not more successful than I was with the R-Studio.

@Alt Could you meanwhile analyze the video files regarding a signature?

Sorry for the delay, I'll start analyzing then ASAP.

Hello Alt! I just think about giving the disk to another service and would like to make a new scan with the signatures before. Can you perhaps take a look at the signatures?

Perhaps you are looking at this in the completely wrong way. If it's really just a RAID 1 then you should be finding a ton of good files in RAW at the very least. If you are only finding fragments, then I'd suspect it was more of a RAID 0 configuration. It was only two drives right?
