So I had a sudden MP3 Resync problem that occurred 3 weeks ago. I've been researching like crazy and this thread relates to my problem. http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/lofive...php/t17568.html

Prior to reading that I have used MP3Test to find all my corrupted MP3's. Though what I'd like to know is how this occurred in the first place! So random... and why isn't it recoverable?

Also I'm curious to know if this cause affects any other files. I did find ONE corrupted jpeg that was greyed halfway out and I have a lot of WAV files that happen to be affected too which is very sad. So.... maybe some experienced people can help me figure this out. Thanks.

What devices were you trying to sync?

not really syncing.... but some of my mp3s had "resyncing errors" which were glitches that made screeching skip noises which in conclusion was a corrupted mp3. It's very odd.

Well the cause could be a range of many different things, from corrupted sectors on your hard drive to a virus that's damaging your files.

That's why it's always wise to make backups of any data that is important to you.

Yeah either a virus or my RAM because it did act up during that week.. not sure why it would affect the files though. And yeah I did back up certain data.. Didn't think files could become corrupt like that though. Lesson learned. I just feel paranoid when I'm on my computer. Like right now...

Someone emailed me (via the mp3decodertest website I assume) saying all their mp3s had become corrupted. They emailed one to me to check. My virus checker (Avast) blocked it. So that would be the first thing I'd check. Then I'd check for faulty hardware.

Cheers,
David.

Thanks. I've checked with Avast already and I did every diagnostic test a computer can actually do. I keep my files on an external hard drive. I recently utilized more of them and began making back ups. Corruption of files isn't spreading so I guess that's good, probably because I reinstalled my OS 2 weeks ago... What a weird virus...

Your HDD or RAM is faulty.

People tend to forget to check their disks for file system corruptions... and they tend to build up.
