Someone here told me to restore a wallet with my seed and i did. Then, to try to recover some btc adress used and i did find two of them.
When i say no balance , no adress, i mean no balance and no History of transactions.

But when i go to "adress", i find two btc adress who i used to move funds.

So we can tell that Electrum restore 2 of my old btc adress , with my seeds.

I hope i'm more clear now. Do i have to stop asking Dave Recovery service ?
Yes, thank you... that answers what I wanted to know...

Unfortunately, it raises even more questions. It really shouldn't be possible for Electrum to have two addresses that you've used before, and show no transaction history, especially if it is properly synced ("green dot).

I have sent you a PM regarding this.

Is it possible that you have imported a private key sometime in the past?
Those are not included in the seed.

I have a csv file with private keys. Can i use it ?

Everyone, i told again and again : i'm sure about my seed and my password. When i use my seed, i recover a wallet with nothing on it, but there is two btc adress who i used in "adress".

And i had the same problem on multibit. I recovered my wallet but there was nothing on it.
Here is the same. I recover my wallet but there is nothing on it.

So , my old wallet won't work with my actual password and when i recover it, there is nothing on it.
I hope i m clear.

Ok, is this a multibit seed?

If yes proceed as follows:

1. Electrum Creat/Restore
2. I allready have a seed
3. Enter your Seed, Click Option, BIP39 Seed, Click Next
4. Change Derivation Path from  ( m/44'/0'/0')  to ( m/0' ) Click Next
5. Set Password and Restore Wallet

Now you History, Balance etc. should be displayed correctly.

You can import/sweep all of your private keys into electrum.
Look here for a short guide on how to import your private keys: https://bitcoinelectrum.com/importing-your-private-keys-into-electrum/

If you are sure about your seed and it already generated addresses which you have used, then its the correct seed.
The problem is mostly caused by you. You should start answering all questions.. Did you import a private key at any moment into your ('lost') wallet?

Yes.. it probably is a multibit seed... thanks for your input.
Maybe read the thread first before posting nonsense:

I know the thread very well. I've already talked to him on Github before this thread here.

And yes, I know that it contradicts his statements but his statements are sometimes extremely strange and / or hard to understand (at least for me).
I only suggested it to him because he mentioned multibit now and his story fits in this case, if you restore a BIP39 Seed on electrum and set the wrong Derivation Path you get exactly what he said, No Balanca, No History etc..

The chance is slim but it is a chance. stay relaxed Grin

You are right, there were quite some contradictions made by OP. I also had a hard time following this.  
I did not intend to sound harsh. I apologize for that.

I don't think his statements fit into this scenario.
OP mentioned his seed recovers 2 addresses which were inside his old wallet. Therefore the seed and the derivation path are set correctly.
The only guess i have at the moment is that he has imported (a) private key(s). Or he may have used addresses beyond the curreng gap limit.



@OP:
Did you try to generate a bunch of new receiving- (and change-) addresses?
Type this into the console of electrum:
Code:
for i in range(0, 100): print wallet.create_new_address(False)
and
Code:
for i in range(0, 100): print wallet.create_new_address(True)

You may in-/decrease the amount (100) as you wish.

Ok guys you have to read what i wrote, because i'm repeating the same thing again and again... And my english is bad i know it Sad

First, this is ELECTRUM SEED for sure.
Second, Yes i had the same problem on MULTIBIT. I recover a wallet with the correct seed. But the wallet was empty.
I have resolved this problem by finding an old version of my wallet file.
I can't do it for my electrum problem because i dont have an other old copy of the wallet.

Did you import a private key at any moment into your ('lost') wallet?

Yes i have a CSV file of key call electrum_private_keys. When i try to create a new wallet, using the option "importing bitcoin adress", it doesn't work, when i use my file, or when i copy , paste one or several adresses of the file.

The Button "Next" stay gray and i click on it.

Can i use my file to get something on it ? What can i do ?

You can't load a CSV file into Electrum... you need to copy/paste either the Bitcoin Addresses (this will generate a watching-only wallet that will NOT let your spend any coins, you can only see them!)... or you copy/paste the private keys which MUST be in "WIF" format... they should start with a "5", a "K" or an "L" and look something like this:
Code:
5J1PVfTB7udG52KQVH5KkdFoTWRhcT6vcQeN7k3b9mcbWhZAiBm
KxA9rVXFky6tJFEVavzqr1jcFq1eePCk2zT3wd8ZgvAUyT998SzD
L1ChtponePMfDRpcBZsF4amXPWZ3cYu48hmkTMaLvzv8gYAp9KQN


When importing the private keys, you must put ONE private key (or address) per line... and NOTHING ELSE, like this:



no other symbols or text, no quote marks or ","s or anything like that, if you do, the "next" button will be disabled:

You have to admit that you seem to
1) not understanding our questions and not answering them properly
2) tell contradictory stories/information
3) be unable to read yourself

It seems like you are either a bit confused on how to click on a link and read the small guide for about 3 minutes
or you simply don't understand anything at all. In this case please clarify what EXACTLY you don't understand and/or doesn't work.

We try to make it as easy as possible. Even monkeys could understand this if they were giving concrete information about whats going wrong.

To recall your code phrase, it is recommended to write it on a separate piece of paper and put it in a distant place of the room away from the computer.

I'm sure I didn't enter a long complex password. Maybe maximum 15 chars long and that's a real maximum, probably shorter.
But I have no idea what the password would be. But I don't think i used anything other than 0-9, A-Z, a-z, and maybe something like an exclamation mark or questionmark... but that will probably be it.

Is there an application that would allow me to brute force this?

I think maybe btcrecover can do this? But is it able to generate all possible combinations for every 15-char long password?
I was unable to find in the manual how to do this.

any help is greatly appreciated!!

With such complex password, I doubt if you will be able to regain access to your coins. That's why it's advisable as simple as possible to ease remembrance.
However, I'd suggest you try btcrecover. You may be lucky enough to regain access if the password is not more than 15 characters.

First calm your self.
Second, i answered all the questions and multiple times. If you have any other question, ask here.
There is no contradictory stories at all.

I told you many times what's going on. Do i have to repeat my self again and again ? Which part you don't understand ?
You think this i a good way to help me ?

And yes i wrote the seed and the password on the paper and yes i used btcrecover many times.

Now i'm trying to restore the wallet with private keys and it works but @HCP

It restore a wallet with no balance on it, but there is transactions history. I only used 2 btc adress from the list.
What's the next moove ?

Import the other addresses until you find the right ones with your BTC.

Where did you get that list of private keys from? It sounds like you've probably got the private keys for your "receive" addresses, but don't have the private keys for your "change" addresses.

The scenario would be:

- You receive coins to "receive" addresses
- You send coins to someone... change from the outgoing transaction(s) goes to new "change" addresses
- Your "receive" addresses are now EMPTY

So, when you restore your "receive" address private keys, it shows the incoming and outgoing transactions, but the balance is zero, as the coins are now on "change" address(es).


Anyway, if this list of private keys that you have is just a list that you manually exported from Electrum, I'd guess that you didn't export the private keys for the "change" addresses (possibly exported the list before the "change" address was generated). However, if your seed is restoring the same "receive" addresses as are being generated when you import the private keys manually... chances are pretty good that you can also restore the required change addresses.

I do not think for a password your wallet can forget it and cannot remember it.
Creating a password does need a strong password, but it would be nice to make it easy for you to remember.
It could also be by writing it on paper and storing it in a safe place. so if forgot to see in the paper earlier.

I answer that many times. I wrote down the password on the paper and on the pc.
It's not the problem.

All this days, i try to export private keys from the file and nothing... I put all the adress (more of 50), i have some transations (a lot) but no balance.
I don't export the file manually. I think there is an option on electrum to export private key on csv.file, that's how i do it.

I don't know how to do now, and no answer from dave recovery wallet...

@HCP
I've sent you a private message regarding this... If possible I'd like your "xpub" so I can have a look at the addresses and transaction history (without having access to the private keys), so I can try and figure out where exactly your coins are and what you'll need to do to recover them.

NOTE: I would recommend that you do NOT post your xpub in this thread as, while it does not affect the security of your wallet (ie. no-one will have access to private keys), it can reduce your privacy as anyone with xpub could see ALL your addresses/transaction history/balance etc

 The default wallet is called "default_wallet"... any further wallets are given default names like "wallet_1","wallet_2" etc... if you change the name they will be called whatever name you give without a file extension... ie. "MySuperSecretWallet" etc.
