Fixing MOV File on Panasonic Lumix Cameras

“Hi, I have been using Panasonic Lumix camera from past few months. It is really a good experience to work on it. It was working normally till I had connected it to a computer about which I was not having much of knowledge. We had been for a wild life sanctuary where we shot many videos and I wanted to view those shot videos on PC or on a bigger screen. I couldn’t resist from viewing those MOV files when I got a computer in surveillance room. After that, when I opened my Panasonic Lumix camera to have a look at the videos again, the videos were not getting played. What can I do now? Is there any way in which I can fix the problem with unplayable MOV files on Panasonic Lumix camera? Please help...”
