    Files are there, but they don't play ???

    I wanted to access some multimedia files today and I realized that they don't play.
    I remember copying them from an SD Card weeks ago (Therefore, most likely it was a FAT formatted Card).
    What can be causing this?
    Files exist with original file size, but they don't play (tried in different players).
