Hi

I can load most types of video files from my laptop onto the internal storage of the 101 xs and the Archos video player finds them and plays virtually all of them without a hitch. I can also connect a memory stick/flash drive via the mini usb socket, using an adaptor, and even videos stored on that play OK. However, as soon as I copy videos onto my 32gb class 10 micro USB card, things start to go wrong. The videos show up in the video player app and the file app, but they won't play. 'File damaged or incomplete' is all you get. In a few cases, the files actually disappear altogether! I've tried copying files onto the card direct from my laptop and by copying files from the tablet's internal storage onto the sd card. Nothing seems to work. Does anyone have any idea where I'm going wrong?

The main reason I opted for the 101 xs was because of the micro sd card slot. I planned to take dozens of videos away with me on holiday etc. If I cannot sort this out, I may start to think I've made a big mistake! :(

Any suggestions would be gratefully received. :?

Thanks

Tony

Hello allhitradio,
can you provide some more information?

What is the filesystem of the SD Card (fat32, ext3, ntfs, etc...)?
What format are the video files you are trying to watch on the 101xs (.mp4, .mkv, etc...)?
How big are the files?

Without some context, it is quite difficult to answer your question.

Thanks for getting back to me. The card is formatted FAT32. When it's inserted into a laptop via the adapter it shows up as a Ricoh SD card.

I've tried a variety of file types on it webm, flv, avi, mpeg, mpg in a variety of sizes ranging from around 150mb to 4gb.

They all play if they are copied directly onto the internal storage of the Archos, but just show up as 'file incomplete or damaged' if copied onto the SD card.

I've tried copying files from the laptop onto the card by inserting the card into the laptop. I've also tried connecting the Archos to the laptop via the USB and copying files onto the card. Frustratingly, files will occasionally play on the SD card once and the next time you try to open them you get the error message and they will never open.

I hadn't thought about formatting the SD card to EXT, so maybe I'll give that a try and see what happens. I'll post again, if this is successful.

Meanwhile, if you have any suggestions I'd be grateful to hear them.

Cheers

Tony
