Hello everyone,

I really need some help here. I recorded a meeting using a MemoQ Pen Recorder MQ-94. It records in MP3 format and has worked in the past. Well, after the meeting I went to download it from the flash drive and the file will not playback on anything. (I've tried all I can on both windos and Mac) The file itself appears to have recorded because it is a 17 mb file, so I know it wrote something. There is clearly an issue with the recorder itself since it used to work fine, but what I need to do is try to recover this file.

When attempting to open the file on a Mac it does nothing. On windows it gives me a general playback error as if it didn't recognize the codec.
The only program I was able to get the file to even open in was Audacity. In Audacity the file appears as a 1.5 sec clip and when I play it, it sounds like the entire hour long meeting in a second.

I tried two programs to repair the file without any luck. (All Media Fixer, and MP3 Repair Tool)

I can't figure out anything else to try at this point to recover this file. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

-Will
