    I've found a couple of threads that address this problem, but nothing specifically similar to mine. Had a problem with a hard drive not mounting, so I had to repair with Disk Warrior. The resulting disk image was saved with some files that couldn't be saved (I guess files that were damaged). Transferred all of my files over to another drive. End result is that some of my movies aren't being read as movie files. Anyone have any possible solutions (note: I'm not the most tech savvy fella in the world, but can comprehend some of the language)? Thanks much.

    I think that the file might be partially corrupt and all the data isn't quite there to work it as a movie file. Perhaps try copying it across again. It could be anything from a dodgy cable, faulty computer, to just the fact that the hard drive failed!
