I've been using an 808 keychain camera on launches for a few years and have never had an issue. Today I sent it up on my LOC Aura, but when I went to open the file it stopped converting halfway through and I got a message stating that QuickTime could not open it. I recorded a video just three days ago with no problem and have not made any changes to my computer since then. My other videos are playing on QuickTime just fine. Anyone else have this problem?
Had this happen when I had a rocket plus camera go for an unplanned swim in a swamp. Was corrupted...never could fix it.
It did have a bit of a hard landing. Oh well - easy to replace and it wasn't a stellar video anyhow.
Did you pull the micro sd card out and put it in one of those micro sd card readers? i.e. take the camera out of the equation?
