MOV file repair utility

My #11 card slot no longer latches the card in... need to do some surgery to fix it, but I have been holding the card in place with some tape in the interim.

Yesterday I shot some AV and the tape slipped enough for the card to move and lose contact with the slot pins. As I feared, the video will not play, but the file icon does show up on the card when I open the folder with a size of 225 MB. So there's video data there if I can access it. The corrupted file is recognized as a MOV QT file by Gspot utility, but no file properties show up. I tried the CHKDSK /F DOS command "fix" as well as a file recovery program, and they don't find any problem with the file.

Maybe some of the MAC users in this thread know of a repair tool specifically for MOV files? Since I use Windows PC, I'd like to find a repair utility for that platform, but if only MAC utilities exist, maybe someone with a MAC would be willing to see if the file can be repaired?
