Need technical answer

Hi,

I am not an I-Phone guru by any stretch of the imagination but require some technical expertise for an ongoing legal issue:-

I have recorded on an I-Phone 4, some footage of myself playing the guitar in amongst some photos I have taken of landmarks. Somehow, and I dont know how, other footage, apparently has got mixed up in this footage. So, in other words, a video of me playing guitar, then some other footage (seperate), then another video of me playing guitar. The I-Phone I have is not Jailbroken and has no illegal software on there, other than this video (apparently). As far as I am aware, you plug the I-Phone into a PC and it brings up I-Tunes. As far as I also know is that if you download a film through I-Tunes, the only way to access it on the I-Phone is in the "Movies" section, and Music in the "music section". I know the personal section can be accessed through Windows Explorer and files can be taken out of that area (DCIM) but as far as I can see no files can be placed in that directory. So, my questions are as follows:-

1: How can a video that was NOT taken on that device get into that particular area, where only stuff taken with the ACTUAL device is stored? For example, can a direct download from the device itself store it there?

I dont think it can due to copyright. There is no illegal software on that I-Phone and nor is there any software that allows the playing of AVI's or anything on the I-Phone. So, in reality I am a bit confused as to how that video can get mixed in with the guitar playing unless it was recorded with the ACTUAL device.

Help please.

Thanks in advance

That's a very strange problem. The only possibility I can think of is if you somehow grabbed the "separate" file onto the first video when you wanted to start again. Then recorded the second part of your video. I know it's pretty easy to grab or click on the wrong file or app with the iPhone. I've done it myself. Although, I never pulled one file onto another file.

Apologies. I have probably worded it wrong.

First thing, thank you so much for the very quick response.

Secondly, the actual issue is as follows (I hope I get it right this time):-

1: I take a couple of photos with the I-Phone
2: I record myself playing guitar with the I-Phone
3: I do another seperate recording of myself playing the Guitar on the I-Phone

So, lets just say, lesson 1 on guitar. Stop recording. Lesson 2 on guitar, Stop recording - So these 2 are completely seperate files.

4: Another video file appears between these 2 files - Also a completely seperate file.

Now, this video file should not be there and I dont know how it got there, as the only way I know of to get a video file in among the other 2 is to either:-

a: Have a jailbroken phone (Mine is not)
b: Have somespecialist software (I do not have any kind of specialist software)
c: Have something planted there by someone who does have point b above

So, I guess again, do you know how that file could have got there without actually using the I-Phone itself to record anything. I dont know how you can as if it was a movie it would accessible in the movie area and not the actual Pictures/ self made area.

Does that make sense at all?

Apologies if it does not, as said, I dont really know a lot about the manipulation of files within the I-Phone structure.

Thanks again

I think I understrood it the first time. Basically you started a recording (lesson 1), stopped it, started recording again (lesson 2), then stopped it. When you played it back there was another recording between those two. On my Digital recorder if I pull one video on top of another video the program will join these two files. Then, I could continue recording. I'm not saying this is what happened in you case. Just a possibility.
