I am running 10.3.9 with QT 7.2.0
I had a failing hard disk.
As a result of that I now have some corrupted .mov files created with my Digital Camera.

When I try to open them with QT it comes back with:
"The film could not be opened"

When I try to open with GC (Graphic Converter)
"System error -2048 occurred in document xxxx.mov"
According to Thorsten Lemke this comes from the QuickTime toolbox.

When I try to open with VLC it comes with:
"mp4: MP4 plugin discarded (no moov box)"

Using a hex editor I copied some data of a working .mov into a failing .mov
And I got it to open and run correctly

So now I am looking for a description of the file-layout of how a .mov should be.
Or if someone could hint in any direction to repair my corrupted .mov files?

Thanks in advance
