Since your files are avi you might want to find out what the fourcc or codec is. Use one of the tools on this page

Go here and download gspot.
http://www.headbands.com/gspot
Feed the avi file that will not play into it. [Here’s a guide on how to do that if you get lost (it’s at the bottom of the page) http://www.moviecodec.com/questions/neededcodec.html]
Then paste back to us on this board the following information:
Under File: Stat
Under Stream Type/Interleave: Type
Under Video Codec: 4CC and Stat

It’s really hard to tell. People on file sharing networks tend to mangle filenames and extensions so much you can hardly tell what the contents are. I would just try opening the file with as many different programs as I can. Here’s some you can try: videoinspector, avicodec, media player classic, videolan, real player, winrar, and a cd burning program (in case it’s a cd image). reply

I don’t know what you mean by “crash” in this case, but the fact that you lost 620 mp3 files resembles the payload of the 'i love you' worm from 2001 (not to say that there’s not new viruses or worms out there that also target mp3’s). You might want to do an antivirus scan on your hard disk. reply
