Hi,
What media players have you tried?

If you haven't already, try: VLC www.videolan.org/vlc/ 

If that doesn't work I would say the file didn't copy properly or may be corrupt.


Cheers,
Josh

File corruption. Still does not work. I have tried VLC, Nero - paid version, Freemake Video Converter, AVS4You - paid version. Nothing has worked. Thanks for trying though.
