Hey Mubasheer. The problem you are having is not the files you have recovered that are unreadable. You have to understand how the file recovery program works. When you delete a file, the index which is stored separately contains the files location, the type a file it is. (.doc, mp3, etc.) and it's length. When that is gone and BTW that's all that is erased when you delete a file your file become an unidentified blob of data on your storage device waiting to be over-written.
The program you used and similar ones read these data blobs and try to make sense of them. These blobs do contain hints on what they once were and their start and stop points and that varies depending on what the original file was. It appears the programs best guess wasn't good enough in a couple of instances in recovery.
You may want to get a second opinion and try another recovery program and see what that might find if what's missing is that important. I doubt what was transferred is corrupt due to something wrong with the drive it was written to. As a last ditch effort if you have a clue what that file may have contained try changing the file extension of the corrupt file to what you think it may have been. It works in very rare situations.
Good luck.
