I have files in my internal storage and on my SD card that shows there is data in them, but I can't open or view them - wrong format. How do I reformat those files? Vodafone Smart Tab 3G working on Android 4.4.2

Hey Miss Valerie, if this used to work in the past and suddely just ceased working, then either application responsible for opening such formats was inadvertantly uninstalled or they are virus infected and likely damaged. Otherwise, view theie details/properties info and note down their format(s), and then download an App dedicated to opening such formats from the Play Store - e.g GIF Viewer, AVI player, etc.
