Potential Corrupted Files

All of the files on my GoPro SD are there but I am only able to view 1/3 of them. The other 2/3rd's display an error or cant be read dialogue message when clicked. 

How can I recover or make viewable the currupted files? Is it possible & worthwhile to to recover?

Re: Potential Corrupted Files

You're probably not going to be able to recover those files. You should consider using a different SD card in your camera, preferably from this list https://gopro.com/help/articles/Block/microSD-Card-Considerations

If you want to keep trying with the card you have, you should do a full format in your computer (you will lose all data on the card) and then a second format of the card in the camera.
