Damaged Mp3z

Recently I formatted my hard disk. I temporarily transferred my mp3s to another hard disk & later copied it back. However some refused to copy, giving the message "Cyclic Redundancy" or something...

most of the mp3s in that folder now give clicks when played back (especailly ones just before or after the files that did not get copied). I have even tried copying them on a cd & playing them on another computer, but to no avail.

Is there software which can repair these files?

You should be able to find something in this list of 80 programs found.

I found MP3Trim, and it appears it will do what you want. It is also free:
