Default audio appearing as text

someone loaded audio onto an ftp site for me to pull

I got the files, but the are appearing as text and quiktime, i tunes, etc will not read them. They are the correct file sizes so it seems like the audio data is in there, but i cant get them to play

im assuming the ftp site changed them, how con i recover them?
