Im having this problem. Everytime i try to open one file, which contains all the movies i havent seen yet, my computer jams. It gets totally blocked. After that i always have to reboot. Ive checked the file with anti-virus and spyware programmes. All other files are fine and everything works fine too. Damn i really dont want to delete that file or anything cause i want to see those movies :mad:.

a bit more detail wouldn't hurt, or if you could explain your self better do you mean that you have loads of movies in a folder and when you go into that folder your computer crashes?

1. What format of movie is it you want to see (if you don't know, find out) 2. Does the file have a recognisable icon of some program you use or a generic white icon with the Windows logo on it (if you use Windows)? 3. How big is the file? If it's anything extremely small it will most definately not be the movies you want to watch.

It's most likely that your computer is trying to load 8.5GB of stuff into memory, and is having a tough time. Try leaving it on for a few hours to open the folder, then seperate the files inside to avoid you having to go through the whole fiasco again.

What program are you trying to open it with? A DVD program would help:D

I have many times larger folders than this one and they all work fine. It was about 3 days ago when it crashed first time. That day i tried to move a movie from there to another folder. Something went wrong and that movie never got to the new folder. Maybe that caused it.

Hey, I know this isn't the topic, but how do I copy some DVDs to my HD? I didn't pirate them...I purchased all three LOTR movies, and I'd like to save them to my HD for easier use, but don't know how :( Any ideas?

I had a situation where my Explorer would crash each time I clicked on a movie file. I did not have to reboot, but I could not view a folder with movies in it. I found that I had to un-install the Xvid codec and it cleared up. Go to your Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs and see if you have Xvid loaded, and if so, remove it and see if it helps.
