"Searching for movie data in file "NC051large.mov"...
How large are these files according to the finder? Sounds as if this file is a QT "reference" file which merely "points" to the second file which actually contains the data. If you deleted the file (or did not copy it along with the reference file), then you cannot open/play the reference file. The second message error, -128 (userCanceledErr) is a Menu Manager Error telling you it could not complete the current operation because you cancelled what it was doing.
Thanks for the reply, Jon. The three unplayable .mov files I'm using as examples range in size from 52.8 MB to 93.2 MB according to the Finder. I have related files that are both smaller and larger, and they all play fine. All of the three files appear to be there but QuickTime doesn't seem to be recognizing them either in whole or in part.
Thanks for the clarification about the "userCanceledErr;" if that message had been displayed instead, I would have understood.

Then they are obviously not normal "reference" MOV files. Still there is the possibility that some track data is "resourced/paired" with a secondary file. (E.g., an M2V video in one container paired with AIFF audio in another container?)
Am grasping for answers here...
I suspect you are right about the files being paired with another unknown file, which I probably deleted sometime in the past. Now I wish I had bought my GRAID 2TB drive sooner and kept those old backups; another lesson learned. Thanks again for your time; if I ever discovered what happened I'll repost.
