    How to fix a corrupt .avi file (from capture in CS3)?

      So I was recording a VERY long meeting at work and recorded it to my PC via Premiere. Since the recording was unattended, the file size is 275GB! I didn't really think anything would go wrong since I have recorded large .avi files in the past.

      Well when I try to import the .avi or play it in media player, it is saying it is corrupt/wrong file format. I tried a few avi repair utilities and none of them fixed it. I'm guessing the avi headers are missing, but I thought Premiere wrote progressive .avi files (at least their export is progressive and valid while its writing).

      Any help to repair salvage the avi? I only need about 50% of the actual content.
