Nikon D90 is the first-ever DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex) camera with video recording feature. It can record HD (High-Definition) 720p videos and has monaural sound capability. The file format used by Nikon D90 to store its HD movies is AVI. Nikon D90 is a SD (Secure Digital) and SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) compatible camera and the videos that you shoot using this camera are all stored on these cards, apart from its internal memory. Since SD and SDHC cards are susceptible to corruption, the videos stored on these cards can become unavailable for the user. This occurs because a corrupted storage media card cannot be recognized or read by Nikon D90 or any other device. Lost videos may remain inaccessible until you apply a suitable backup or run a Video Data Recovery tool.
Before mentioning the ways to recover lost videos from Nikon D90, let’s first discuss the different ways by which a SD/SDHC card or camera’s internal memory can get corrupt. The common practices followed by users that ultimately result in storage media corruption and hence loss of videos are:
· Ejecting the digital media card early enough for the device to complete the ongoing write process
· Shooting videos without realizing that the storage card is nearly full.
· Shooting videos when the camera’s batteries are dying out. This results in an interrupted write operation.
· Using exclusive SD/SDHC card of Nikon D90 in different devices, including the ones that do not recognize the file system of SD/SDHC card.
A corrupted SD/SDHC card may prompt errors or freeze the device on attempting to access the card. One such error is:
“Memory Card Error”
If the SD/SDHC card doesn’t store any important videos or pictures or, in case, you have a valid backup, you can format it to make it reusable. But if it has some worthwhile memories that cannot be restored from backup, using a Video File Recovery utility is beneficial. Though these Video Data Recovery software can also recover from a reformatted media, but recovering videos from a corrupted media bring more effective results.
Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery is an excellent tool that recovers lost videos, images and audios from corrupted or reformatted digital media card, digital cameras, CDs, DVDs, hard disks, and similar other storage media. This Video File Recovery utility supports almost all the video file formats, including .AVI, .MOV, .MPEG, and more.
