I've encountered this a few times. The trick I use it to convert the files. On Linux, I use Soundconverter (in Synaptic). On XP, Nero 7. For example, a "corrupt" MP3, I convert it to the same settings, (ie, 320kbps, WAV to WAV), to a different output folder. (You can't overwrite the source.) I've had positive success doing this. However, there is no way of knowing the results for everyone will be the same. You know the files worked at one time, but not sure why they won't now.
Another way, but very
tedious, is to drag them, one at a time, into Audacity and export accordingly (WAV, Ogg, MP3).
Worth a try.
