    Thanks Hellhammer, so will I just basically go to disk utility and click the repair disk?

    Thanks

    Yup, it's very simple. While you're in the Disk Utility, verify the disk too (it's the button next the permissions repair button)

    Might be because QuickTime doesn't support all formats. Install Perian, it adds support to QT for most formats. If they still don't work, use VLC to watch them, it supports pretty much every format. Haven't found a video that doesn't work with it

    I have my VLC, if it will not run with Quick Time, VLC is the saviour.
