Windows 7: Problem retrieving video from an SD card

Problem retrieving video from an SD card

I recently shot some HD video onto a couple of SD cards.
I was using an DSLR camera so the video was recorded in 4 gig files.
Out of the resulting four files on the second SD card (Kingston 8 GB class 10), three are OK but the fourth has an error approximately 1.5 minutes into the 30 minute file.
The file appears corrupt.
I cannot copy the file because the error causes the copying process to stop when that point is reached
I cannot repair the file using Windows Disc Check/Repair on the SD card drive because Windows stops recognising the card when it reaches the error.
I have put the card back into the camera to watch the video but it will not play past the error point
I have tried a couple of file-reclamation programmes but again they do not see the file past the error point.
However -
In both WMP and VLC, I can play the video on the card up to the error point and, if I quickly slide the 'time scroll bar', I can play the video past the error point to the end.
I would gladly accept a copy of the video with the area with the error edited out if there was some way to chop that point out.
Alternatively, two videos, one from the start up to the error point and one from error point until the end would be great, but I don't know how to copy them from the screen and keep reasonable quality.
As far as I can see, all of these so called file retrieval programmes look for complete and uncorrupted files .
If anyone has any bright ideas, I really would be grateful as the corrupted file contains the finale of a play and was/is therefore the most important file.
