In Windows XP I had 512 megs RAM that I increased to 2 gigs. It made no difference. Now in Windows 7 I have 4 gigs of RAM and the same problem continues.
I took one of the files to play on an Office Computer with 8 gigs of RAM. There was still no difference. I can only watch these files after converting them to DVD (VOB) format when they play perfectly well.
Many persons have reported the same problem on the Net but no one has found a solution except to play them with PlayStation 3. Do these files play properly on your computer and how much of RAM do you have?

This problem has been carried over from XP to Vista to Windows 7.
Is there a good free media player out there that would play over 4 gigs file properly?
You are probably experiencing an issue with the file being larger than the amount of ram you have.
If you are 32 bit as your specs say, the max ram available to your entire system is about 3.26 gigs
