Hisun 8GB USB 2.0 Flash drive on Windows XP SP3 computer. The drive works well with any other type of file, except a video file. .AVI .WMV etc... I have 4 Flash drives two out of the four will not play video files and if you just use them to copy the video files from one computer to another they cause the video files to become useless even once back on the hdd. The other one that does this is a 16GB drive generic no name brand.
My two flash drives that do work just fine with video files are my Kingston data traveler 100 2GB and my DaneElec 2GB drive.
Both of the smaller 2GB drives use FAT while the larger drives use FAT32 file system. I tried formating the larger drives to NTFS but Windows will not complete the format. I tried changing them to FAT instead of FAT32, but this is not an option probably due to their size.
This has nothing whatsoever to do with codecs and the like. These files play like I said on the HDD and on my smaller 2GB USB flash drives.
Any help, links etc will be appreciated.
