When files are deleted they still remain on camcorder hard drive and can be recovered, unless they have been overwritten by fresh data.

The only thing to do so run a data recovery program to see what can be recovered. The only program I have tested is asoftech data recovery software and it had done the job well. download the data recovery from http://www.asoftech.com/adr/

Select the drive where your files were deleted and then do a deep scan. It will find your deleted files.

Deleting files from camcorder is just like clearing the recycle bin or Trash onyour comptuter. The data itself isn't deleted, just the area containing the deleted data is also now marked as free space so it is available for any new data to be written there instead. So a simple delete won't make your videos erased permanently.

As a result, you have chance to retrieve those deleted videos as long as the video data on your camcorder(memory card or hard disk) are not written over. And the best way is to try some video recovery software, here are some for your options. Both programs can also recover photos and music.

video photo recovery program (for Windows OS)
Mac video photo recovery program (for Mac OS X)

First of all you need to install the program on your computer (choose the right version based on the operation system you are running), then connect your camcorder (memory card or HDD) to the computer and start to recover your deleted videos.

One More Tip: Your should act as soon as possible and before the deleted videos are recovered, better not take more videos in case overwritten situation will happen.

I hope you good luck, Merry Christmas!

It sounds like these videos are not compatible with your camcorder. Simply play them all on the computer.
But, right now, in order to get them all back, you need a deleted file data recovery freeware to retrieve these deleted videos back successfully.
This data recovery freeware helped a lot as the camcorder of my friend had some data recovery problems. He had mistakenly formatted it and all the saved videos seemed to be gone permanently. But, fortunately, he found this freeware and eventually got back all his wanted videos back completely.
So, try to download this freeware here:

Hello, toryt12! Don't worry. I recommend you to use this photo recovery software (also recover audio and video files); it can help you recover your lost video files from your Sony Digital Camcorder (or Memory Card):
Photo Recovery for Windows Users
Photo Recovery for Mac Users
Kind Suggestion: Before your video files are retrieved, do not save more files to the device (or memory card) in case the original files (your video files) are overwritten.
Best wishes!

Hi I have sony camcorder dcr sr42 and my vedios r deleted accidentally .after tht my frnd recorded a few .can still the deleted vedios be recovered ...please help those vedios were very important for me


It's probably permanently deleted but try plugging it into your computer and accessing the hard drive. You might see files in there that look like they are in a deleted state but not yet actually deleted because they haven't been overwritten yet. The file names might start with characters like $ or # or other characters besides numbers/letters.
