I don't think there is anything you can do. I think they are just... corrupt. It's happened to me before. Read this link:

You can try and download a recovery software to try and recover it.

I've learned to keep a back up for every computer, and a back up of every hard drive.
So I have 2 copies of everything, and a cd back up of everything. It's a little obsessive, but I learned the HARD WAY. I had 2 drives fail withing a week of one another. One was brand new, the other was 8 years old. I had a wedding on it, AND my babies hospital videos were on there. Made me sick.
