Explorer and avi files on a external Hard Drive

Hi guys n gals and a Happy New Year to you all, now I have a external hard drive with lots of movies on, now it takes explorer ages to display them all, I have set view to just details as I thought it would speed up the displaying of them. Is there any way to make them display faster? I have K-Lite codec pack installed if that's any help.

Hello,

Have you tried Indexing those files? Also, what anti-virus are you using?

Thanks,

I would suggest disabling Avira. If you feel insecure, try Microsoft Security Essentials.

Well I think it's just because I have a lot of files and I mean a lot after all it is a 1 terabyte drive so maybe it will take it's time to get the info from the files, tried indexing them but didn't actually notice a speed increase. Also changed my virus software to MS, seems very memory efficient and slim, thanks for the help Mr King :)
