I have a Macbook Pro
So i just got my shiny brand new Sanyo HD700 camcorder.
Filmed a couple of movies.
Attached to my Mac.
First one played ok.
Second one came up with 'An invalid public movie atom was found in the movie'?????
I did a bit of a google search and assumed i may need a Quicktime update which i have done but to no avail.

IF you have the files saved on an external drive (or even if they were at ANY point saved on an external drive), go to your manuf's website and download the latest firmware upgrade for that external drive. Worked for me and solved ALL my .dmg issues, ALL my public movie atom issues, and all my "Error 4960" issues.

If the files became "corrupt" at some point (while they were on an external drive) - copying them to another location would only be making copies of broken files. You have to go back to the drive (hopefully they are still there). Keeping the files ON the drive, update the firmware. Everything came back for me, instantly. Whew!
