Attempting to view old images and videos

I have a Western Digital external storage device, and I have stored many different types of images and videos on it, mostly from DVD's. Now trying to view them, I am getting error messages such as : JPG image. "failed to open document", or "Couldn't display IMG_1234.JGP, because of an error loading the data". I am a little disconcerted about this, because these are very valuable family images and videos. Has anyone had a similar problem, with an answer,please?

That was my original idea to store all of my Dvd content on an external drive!
How to keep files safe (forever!) is probably a very difficult question, and it reminds me of the old backup adage, something like Son, Father Grandfather, where multiple copies are advised, and so called to remember the sequence of saving.
Good advice, and I have learned a lesson. Your method closely resembles the old advice.
