Hey folks, got a quick question for ya.

I've got some .AVI anime music videos i've downloaded, and if any of you are as avid about a good music video as I am, you'll know the pain of having the video file degrade over time (suddenly everything becomes pixelated (sp?) or freezes for several seconds .. this seems to be a data corruption problem as i've seen it progress randomly. I was just curious if you guys knew of any ways (other then backing up to CDs/DVDs, and praying THEY don't go bad) to either preserve those .avi files, or to repair them somehow to a better condition?

Thanks for your time,
