Files data has mixed-up but not corrupt?

  1. I have a very strange issue.

    I have a FAT32 drive where some of my data has mixed up. Seams to be mainly mp3 and avi files. They don't give errors when playing but switch to a different song or movie halfway then switch back. Always the same place and the same change. I've check on three different machines with many different players. Even if I copy the file to a new drive it does it. So its as if the data has been chopped up and spliced perfectly into other files.

    Not sure if its a FAT thing, ran testdisk 6.6 and it said there are no errors in the table.

    Anyone know if I can rebuild the files?

    Thanks jobeard
    I had run it in drive properties with fix errors. But I'll give it a try in dos prompt.
