Ok, so last night my computer was having issues, it was locking up again (if you've read a few of my previous posts, this is common with my laptop and results in me reinstalling windows), so I was added to a group call on skype with about 5 other people, and I started up fraps because this call was just too damn funny to miss. After about 6 minutes, i had to reboot computer so i said brb and did.
but I wasn't able to stop the recording and just restarted. The .avi file is still in the recording folder, windows media player can't open it; "Windows Media Player encountered a problem playing this file".
and VLC wont play it either, it shows the file length and the play/pause button is showing its playing but the scrobble thing doesnt move, and i cant see/hear anything. Its only the audio I need, but if I can get both that'd be mint. The file is 3.9gb if that matters.

Cheers in advance, Sam.

If a chkdsk /f did not happen automatically when you restarted, run one manually.

Ok. What should I do if that does nothing?

Run the chkdsk /f first to clean things up, if lucky maybe vlc will work after that.

Then try this: http://www.divfix.org/index.php

I run this on all my windows PCs for deleting things.

Not only for deleting, but for stopping windows "owning" a file so it can be opened with other things

Fraps limits capture sizes to 4gb, theres a chance it has become corrupted by filling to its limits. Boot up into a Linux live CD and see if it plays, then maybe load the file into VirtualDub in windows, strip out the audio and see if it plays then in vlc.




Support a locally made Linux based Operating System, try Linux Lite.
