It's probably easier to delete the content from the DP (Admin, DP, content tab) and then distributed fresh. Content library explorer has the option to redistribute if you right-click if you haven't tried it already.

Make sure the source path is correct AND that no-one has changed any files since you distributed first time.

use CMtrace to save your sanity.

If it says invalid is there an error code?
