I have a .r00 and a .raw file, named the same. I have this because I was testing the auto restart (but can't seem to turn it off anyway)

I'm on windows 8
I've tired raw2dng.exe on both, neither worked
then this http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5557.0 then managed to get a conjoined .raw and then raw2dng.exe again, but nothing, in fact, it gave me some sass!
so I tried this http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5732.0 but gives me nothing but glitched pink videos
I also tried some other command prompt thing where you "+" the files together, it did some thinking, but gave me no file at the end?

is there a proven way to join them?


AFAIK you shouldn't need to join them as most tools should treat the 2 files as a single extended file (at least that's what MlRawViewer does).

Anyway, if you don't have any luck with any other tools, you can try my "rawcover.py" python script (it has no dependencies) which can extract raw files from some kinds of corruption.



I'm not sure how to use that? do I put it into notepad and .exe it?


Save it to a file called "rawcover.py"
Download python for windows from http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.7.6/
Open a command prompt window (cmd.exe)
Run it like this:

c:\directory\where\you\installed\python.exe c:\directory\containing\rawcover.py c:\directory\containing\file.r00

(replacing the \directory\...\ parts with the actual paths on your system).


I saved the file as that from notepad? because if that's what I was supposed to do, then I don't know what was supposed to happen  :-\ because all it did was ask me how I wanted to open the .pl file

can anyone help me figure out how to turn movie restart off? I've turned it off in the menus, but it still does it? am I missing something?


OH! OH! I just used raw2dng with the .r00 file itself and it worked away until it was done..... but there was nothing at the end? no pictures to be found? usually they just show up in the folder that the original file is in? help?  ???


oh, I got it to give me dng files, but they are always glitched badly....


finally after many variations of command lined prompts, this seems to have worked. Get your command prompt, then:
cd C:\your folders address
copy /b"M25-1920.RAW"+"M25-1920.R00"+"M25-1920.R01"+"M25-1920.R02"+"M25-1920.R03" xyz.RAW

(of course change the file names to the names of your files) then just add your own file name at the end that's in red, and convert to dng like normal (I use raw2dng.exe)


tested this with .MLV and .MOO files, it's pretty much exactly the same, but put a space after the "/b" part, or it probably wont work for mlv or raw, the other thing you may want to know is, if you're accessing a different drive, you have to type the drive in before the "cd" part, for instance, on it's own line put in "G:" then put in the "cd" part (cd stands for change directory, not compact disc :P )
