Has anyone experienced this problem?
I have yet to watch a blu ray movie yet, but I'm trying a few MKV files.
The first one had an extremely long name so I just put the initials as the file name.
Hooked my WD pocket hdd, pushed play button, and it said "It may not play properly". I said ok, and it did in fact play properly. This was a 1080p movie.
I then copied another file to the HDD with a very long name, in folder named the same (so the path is twice as long)...
I did not get a warning message, but the movie froze at 1:17 and no buttons on the remote or the deviece work. The device shut itself down after like 30 seconds(?).
Deleted the folder, recopied, same problem.
I then shortened the folder name. It worked.
This was a 720p movie.
Today again in another movie (I can't remember the resolution), it froze at around 1:28 and shut itself down when the movie was in a long named folder, but when copied to the main drive without folders, it worked fine. I did not receive a warning on this one either...
So, I am guessing the shutting down after a minute is because of long file & folder names. But why? I mean it's playing fine in the first minute.
And do you think the warning message is 1080p related? (although it worked fine)...
One last thing, I asked earlier but been misunderstood, would hooking up a flash drive help buffering streaming stuff? (I know it won't have a difference on my internet speed, duh
