this is the first time ive came across something like this and its the reason i signed up here because not even google understands my problem.
i have alot of music on my hard drive and i use it almost every other day and its always been fine !
suddenly yesterday i open my DJing software (Serato DJ) and i want to play music in my house and some of my music have 6 mins but only play 1 min while skipping?
i thought it was cuz of the software so i uninstalled and redownloaded and it was the same,,,, i tried playing them from my folders to media player and also VLC and the same problem was there even after restarting etc...
im a dj and now i cant even work anymore because i do not know what files are like that and what files are not all music was like that only mybe every 6 out of 10
also i want to mention that in all media players the duration could be 6 minutes but the progress bar skips through it and in some other files i had 2 songs mixed in one in the file? for example i open a song and it plays a different song that i know from my library and then skips to the original song again??? What gives???

i know this is a confusing one but im hoping to get more information and thanks in advance!

I've edited your post for language. Even in the form of an acronym, it's not acceptable so please be more careful in the future as this is a family friendly site.
If it's occurring with multiple players, I'd suspect the files are corrupted.

I would start by testing the HDD using the drive manufacturers disk tools. Run the short and long test. If either test fails, the drive likely needs to be replaced.
