Hello everyone
I'm having a problem with opening a recording from my phone. The mp3 format file got corrupted because while recording the I absentmindedly swiched off the phone :-( and NO software on this planet is able to open it. I've tried mp3val ,mp3diag mp3 direct cut, audiocity and a bunch of other http://www.free-codecs.com/download/MP3_Repair_Tool.htm
http://en.kioskea.net/download/download-11832-mp3-player-files-recovery-software
http://www.mp3toolkit.com/
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/292712/mp3-files-in-unknown-file-format/
All of these were not even cabable of opening the file not to mention fix it. Converting the mp3 to different format was imposible as well.
The size in MB and lenth of the mp3 file is correct, so there must be somethig in there to recover I guess .since the damage was caused by incorrent finishing of the record.
ANY sugestions what else can I do or where to seek help :-) :-)

I'm not certain, haven't tried it on an mp3 file yet, I have Cyberlink's Director's Suite.  Do you want me to try & fix it?  The worst that can happen - we will know one more filament that won't light up the bulb [Thomas Edison].

Hi Barbara S and Welcome

 

Just tried this in audacity. Two problems found 1 File size (download size 51.5KB)

                                                                          2 Length ((using raw data won't import as mp3) depending on bit rate Low 1/2 a second approx High .204s)

 

All hiss so unfortunately nothing to work with this end

Best advice is to work with it on the phone (it does not like being moved) The original file might be savable but beyond my expertise

 

Sorry I could not be more help 

 

Good luck 

 

Hedge

Hi Barbara.S

 

Sorry like I said a little beyond me, But it may well be worth a search in a different direction

Just a suggestion, have you tried playing it with vlc media player? this software can usually manage any video or audio file, and sometimes it can make partly corrupted ones work, if it does play ok within vlc you can then convert it to another format, and then open this new file you've made and convert it again 9this tiem to mp3 format) using vlc's tools and it should then be able to play using other media players.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
