How to play a corrupted video file?

Specs: Windows XP, 2.93GHz Intel core 2 duo processor, GB RAM
I have a DVD disc which had 3 videos. Out of these, only one video doesn't play. It only plays the audio. I've tried playing it in VLC, WMP, SmPlayer, Nero Showtime, Winamp but to no avail. I have even converted into different formats but it doesn't works. I think it might not be burned properly, but then how it plays other videos? Will video editing help in this regard?
Kindly help.

"Will video editing help in this regard?"

Not if there is no video data present in that file. What is the size of the file? How does the size compare to the other (working) video files? If the video data is missing, there will be a significant difference in the file sizes.

It could also be a case of not having the right codec installed. Without the right codec, converting the file will result in a file with no video data. If audio is playing, you obviously have the right audio codec installed. Download gSpot and check the video codec.

Please let us know if you found someone's advice to be helpful.
