    Is it recommending to by a wireless backup/cloud drive and back up 2 computers to the one drive? Has anyone had any experience with this. This would be my perfered method over having to manually plug in the one laptop each time I wanted to back it up. Thanks.

    Through many attempts I could not get MPEG Streamclip to recongnize the MPEG-2 component was installed. I was able to get the files to convert using handbrake though. I had tried handbrake on my work PC without luck, but it worked on my iMac so the issue is solved for now.

    I had the files run overnight and they seem to play without any noticable issues. Thanks eveyrone for the help.

    I've heard back from the studio and they claim the files import and play in their editing software without issue. I've tried loading the files onto a editing pc at my job and the computer can not recognize the files in any software I've tried.

    I have a feeling they're not admitting something (has happened alot recently with mistakes I've noticed). Does anyone have any last ideas I could try before telling them the files still don't work? Thanks.

    I'm going to contact the studio about the problems I'm experiencing. What's fusterating is that for 2 months I've been trying to get these files and between waiting for them to send my drive back and getting curropt files each time I don't feel like it worth it much longer. If I had other avenues to suppliment the potential income my decsion would be much easier. Though wasting so much time one their files/issues is equally a waste of time and money.

    Hey guys, I have tried manually updated Quicktime and even downloaded the last version of Quicktime 7, no luck though. I also bought the Mpeg-2 playback component, but my computer will not allow me to install it as I'm running the latest OS and it says it is not needed.

    Looks like I'll have to contact the studio about the format it was shot it... have had nothing but problems with this studio. What strange is that right before my system hard drive crash I imported the other wedding into FCPX and it worked as it should. I've since deleted the files since I no longer needed it so I can't compare the two.

    I also was able to take a screen grab from VLC of the codec info.

    So the clips were able to be played via VLC player, but not in Mpeg Streamclip.

    I tried to convert them in compressor, but compressor would not open the files. Any ideas?

    I willl try Mpeg Streamclip as well tonight, thank you.

    I never had issues playing/importing mpeg-4 files before my system crashed. Is there a codec or something else I could be missing?

    My system hard drive crash and was unrecoverable so I had to replace it and do a fresh install of everything. I've since tried importing mpeg-4 files that were sent to me from a studio. I'm not sure what type of DSLR they used, but the structure is different than I normally see.

    The main problem is after I extracted the mpeg-4 files and moved them into folders for importing none of them will play or show up properly into FCPX. I'm wondering if I'm missing a codec or something that was on my previous HDD? I can confirm the ProApps Codec was installed recently from the App Store.

    Any ideas on if this is my machine not being able to read the files or if it's the studios files? Thanks.

    I made an appointment to bring the computer to my local Apple store to see if they can extract the data. If they can't, I'll try the program you suggested. Here's to hoping it's all recoverable!

    Thanks

    So after a few attempts I got the computer in target disk mode each time but was not able to mount the drive. Disk Utility showed it, but was not able to mount it.

    You mentioned Data Rescue 4, do you have experience with it? I'm not sure how it is able to pull the files from my mac?

    I have a demo compiled of a few games I shot for personal situations that wasn't for the network.

    I've been reach out to people in the area and will probally have to start just showing up to local games and handing out information.

    Thansk.

    It's a late 2009 iMac so I would doubt there any chance at a warrenty. I'll have to take it there and see what they say.

    Is install and setting up a system drive something that can be done on my own or something I need to bring to an apple store?

    I will try using target disk mode while hooking it up to my wife Macbook Pro, does the type of connection matter?

    I will also try booting into Safe mode and see if I can extract my data that way.

    Thank you both for the suggestions, I will try these both tonight. If neither work I'll probablly have to go to the Apple store to see if they can recover the files, but it seems like no matter what I'll have to lay out some $ for a new computer... Not something I was looking forward to in the immediate future.

    Thanks again.
