    I was going through my movies in my iTunes library and came across a concert that I DVRed, and decided to put an album art cover on it. Well, I did, but it didn't work (it just changed it to solid black). Now, the video is corrupt, and when played is a black screen with loud popping sounds. Is there anything that can be done to restore the video? I would hate to lose this video, it is by far, my favorite movie that I have!

    Thanks

    I had the SAME thing happen when trying to upload album art. It has happened twice thus far. Each time it happened when I hit "next" since I am trying to add art to all my movies. Batman Begins and Chicken Little both experienced popping sounds and are corrupted. The video files are on my Seagate FreeAgent, which, initially I thought my be the problem. The artwork I am putting in is 1000x1500 pixels if that matters.

    Just letting you know you aren't the only one. And I couldn't restore it :|

    Yep. This just happened to me too. Anyone have a fix? It happened once (but I luckily had a backup). And now it happened again to one of my favorite movies and I dont have a backup. The video is all black and has loud noises and clicking. It won't play in Quicktime, iTunes, VLC or anything. Can anyone help me?
