Hi all,


I consider myself a pretty capable operator. I use Teamviewer to update videos on my friend's computer. She has Kodi running on a Raspberry Pi with a 2TB USB hard drive attached. When I want to upload a file, I log onto her spare Windows XP Home netbook and use Filezilla to connect to my SFTP server and download new files to a mapped Samba share on the Raspberry Pi.


Today I tried to update some files and it worked fine for 7 out of 8 files. That one was a video of my family helping another family member move that I named "The Magnificent Seven". Using that name it would not transfer. I was told it had an i/o error. It downloaded fine using "The Seven". When I tried to rename it using Windows Explorer, I got the same error. So I tried adding the word "Magnificent" one letter at a time. All was sell until I tried to add the last "t". Again I got the i/o error.


I've been working with computer since 1970 (mainframes), with CPM systems since 1978 nd with Windows, Macs and Linus boxes since the early 90s and I've never seen anything like this, A specific word n a file name creates an error.


Also I just tried adding "The Magnificent Seven" to another file name and it worked fine. It is only using "The Magnificent Seven(2016)" that won't work.


Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.
