Possible reasons:
1. Your files got corrupted or not copied properly when you tried to move them.
2. Uninstall the codecs and reinstall a single codec pack. (This might solve the problem)

You can try re-encoding the files, lots of free converters are available.
I had similar problem with mp3 files, when I play it on the car stereo it made a crackling noise. Re-encoded the files and it plays fine.
