File is attached on my google drive link : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1H_mAudZvCIK-JAmJS-iqK7EpJcHNvcLN/view?usp=sharing

Thanks for replying quickly.

According to the file header (viewed in a hex editor), it is an MP4 file, not MP3.
The only audio data that I can find in the file is a brief “chirp” that lasts for about half a second.

also if you can post tutorial on how to fix these types of files it will be helpful to audacity or voice recorder android app users.


There’s a command line application called “untrunc” that may be able to recover some data from the file, but as far as I’m aware it is only available for Linux. https://github.com/ponchio/untrunc
Audacity does not have any tools for recovering data from damaged MP4 files (Yes, it is MP4, which is a container format).

A bit more information about the file:

Name                                     : Recording_7 (1).mp3
Format                                   : MPEG-4
Format profile                           : Base Media / Version 2
Codec ID                                 : mp42 (isom/mp42)
File size                                : 9.75 MiB
IsTruncated                              : Yes

mpeg codec format is used for mp3 also.

is there a way you can recover my mp3 file

I’ve made some suggestions for you to try. That’s the best I can do as this is not an Audacity issue.

If anybody can help let me know.
