    I recorded a number of MPEG files using WinTV under XP (FAT32
    partition) then accidently deleted them. Since they were too large for
    the recycle bin, they were marked for deletion in the usual PC way. I
    immediately realized what I'd done and the partition has a lot of
    freespace so the OS didn't over-write and data yet and I was able to
    "recover" the files with an unerase utility. Unfortunately, none of the
    recovered files will play in any player I've tried. Any idea what's
    wrong and how I can fix them?

    The best restore algorithm I've seen is used in [email protected] undelete tool.
    It worked great for me and always all the restored data was completely
    operable. You can try using this tool, that might really help.

    try recovering them again with ISObuster or use something like
    videoredo's quickstream fix to fix it.
