Try playing them in a different program to see if you can get an error message that at least makes a bit more sense. Cannot play the file is not really descriptive. I suggest VLC, or maybe Winamp. VLC when run from the cmd.exe will output many messages, including ones that could be used to help find a solution to your problem.
Cant anyone help me on this...Im desperate! Ive got near 9gigs of corrupted files and i dont want to format it until ive tryed all avenues.Thanks people.:cry: :cry:

king try looking for an mp3 to wav convertor, perhaps then the files will be fixed in the conversion, and then just convert them all back to mp3's again.

sorry to tell you but any decoder should be able to play mp3 files correctly, let alone something like winamp. the files are corrupt. re-encoding them won't help as in order for something to be encoded it must be decoded first. since it can't be decoded correctly it'll either end up with an unplayable file, part of the file or sound the same as whatever "messed up" means in post #3

sorry :(

you'll have to rip and encode them again

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
