I have a SD card with Files that got changed somehow from MP4 to JPEG...I have tried altering the suffix and it seems like they wont play.

Does anyone know of any FREE program or way to correct this so I dont lose my movies?

1) on VISTA, how could these files have got changed from MP4 to JPEG..I at NO point was I asked a ? to convert?

2) Is there a way to reverse what happened?

The program you mention, will that extract the MP4 or convert the JPEG back to the original MP4 or are these just corrupted and lost. As mentioned, I would know how to ammend the suffix on the file extensions, but that will not do the trick as the movies will not play?

You have been GREAT in responding I THANK you...I use the site to LEARN things. The program you mention is great..Problem being for this particular case there is NO OPTION to convert JPEG to MP4 that I can see. I do have a tendancy to jump the gun but I did not see anything there...I dont know that there is a way to turn these files back and I dont know why they changed..I am most grateful to you for all the assistance you have given on this site..At times problems like this are difficult to resolve via on line.

you can find disk management in control panel/admin tools

then it won't happen until you recover the mp4 movie file intact. a jpeg file is a single frame photo type file with no video data probably a single frame saved from your vid clip. If you saved the card contents to your drive and had clear card checked then you will have to run a file recovery app on the card then resave the files as MP4 on your drive with the proper video editor.
