Hi everyone, I joined the site today + have spent the last 4 hours (aparently)
reading through tons of threads...I need some help before it drives me crazy..
I have 3 USB flash drives, one of 8GB, one of 16GB + the other 260GB. On the 8GB I have assorted videos, both mp4 + avi. I also have had picture files + mp3s on there. The 16GB I have about 14GB of average sized videos of the same formats. Both drives play perfectly well in WMP but only about half of the pics will play in my USB/DVD player connected to my tv, although they are of the same type. (strange)
Here's the biggie though, this has got me stumped, no matter what I try. On the 260GB drive I put about 75 full movies on there as I wanted to clear as much of my hd as I could (1TB) using WMP's sync function, it took nearly 2 days all in all but I was pleased that I could now take my time in burning the movies to disc. Luckily I didn't delete the original copies until I had made sure that I wouldn't lose them on the USB 1st. When I opened up my computer the drive showed, registered the amount of space used/remaining when I hovered over it with mouse. I clicked on the folder to open...So far so good, the movies were all there. They all showed the details of contents as they should....Until...I clicked on them + out of all the files, only 5 would play. All the rest were unplayable + listed when opened as having 00.00 as the length of movie in Properties. I ended up wasting all that time syncing from WMP + in the end, it hadn't worked. I even tried drag + drop/cut + paste with the same result. I had to scrap the whole 70 movies. I tried in RealPlayer, Windows Media Centre, still nothing..
I am so confused, I haven't a clue why it hasn't worked as some did...I tried it out with a few mp3s after to test + some will/won't play...If anyone can come up with any ideas as to why this is happening.....I'd be really grateful + relieved...I won't give up though.....lolol
