Did you change your locale settings recently? I once had similar problems 
when I changed from iso9559 to utf8. My file names had question marks in 
them, and I was not able to handle them with file managers like dolphin.

You might want to check out the 'convmv' utility then. It converts file 
names between locales, and also works for whole directory hierarchies.
