Hello. Hopefully someone can help me with this strange problem. I've googled this and found virtually nothing. So, here it is:
I have a bunch of movies in MP4 format saved to an external hard drive connected to my pc. I have no trouble playing those movies through my computer, from said xhd. I also sometimes transfer them to an 8gb flash drive and still they play perfectly fine. Recently, my dad bought a 512gb kingston flash drive and wanted to "borrow" some of my movies. I transferred 4 movies, no problems at all. They all played. Then, I added another, but this 1 wouldn't play. First, it gave an error, "cannot render file". Then, when I opened the folder again, the movie file was gone completely. *scratching head*
Sooo, we assumed the flash drive was at fault, since he bought it from china, and he bought a toshiba 64 gb flash drive instead. Same exact problem. 1st 4 movies, fine, but on the 5th movie, it's a no go.
The movies are all MP4's and only 1-2 gb's each, so plenty of room on the drives. And again, they play fine everywhere, except when I put 5 of them on a flash drive. I actually have about 100 on my xhd, so I have no idea what's going on.
So far, I've deleted them and started over with different movies and also reformatted the 512 gb drive to NTFS format and still nothing. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Um, computer specs, if you need them:
