My system specs are at the bottom of the page.

Today when I tried to play some audio, (MP3 and Wav files), the file began to play and was okay for about a minute and a half then there was a buzz and a window popped up that said "the specified format is not supported or cannot be translated....". I was using XMPlay 3.8.1.2. I then tried to play other mp3 files and a WAV file. They didn't play at all, I simply got the error message.
I tried playing files using another player, AIMP3 v 3.60 build 1470. They wouldn't play at all with this player and I got the same error message.

I have been listening to these files with no problem for months. I searched online for any messages pertaining to this problem. Most results were over ten years old and often pertained to video issues.

I then went back and tried to play the file again, (I didn't reboot), and they're now playing! Can anyone suggest what may be going on? Is my hard drive failing or are files being corrupted? Thanks. I'd appreciate any help. I listen to audio files throughout the day while working and this would be a big problem if I couldn't listen to them anymore.
