    Regarding watching video from ACER Hard Drive USB Device.

    Hello, I don't know if anyone has post about this matter before but I already tried googling it a bit and didn't find any solution to my problem ><;

    So, after upgrading to Windows 10 (from Windows 7) whenever I pause and play the video again it will freeze for a few minutes and the video will fast forward.

    I thought it's because of the player, so I change to 5KPlayer (previously PotPlayer) but still no luck. Sometimes, whenever I open my hard drive ( H: ) it will freeze and stop responding.

    I hope there is a solution to this problem . Thank you in advance and please excuse my poor grammar.

    Hello Nami Welcome to the Ten Forums!

    One thing I have learned over the years is never expect to play any video file even a Youtube clip that could be downloaded from any secondary drive especially from any usb or drive in a usb enclosure since the sluggishness can be unbearable! The problem with playback become too apparent when you see dropoffs and freeze ups during playback due to this.

    The best possible performance is at least seeing the file on the main C drive for playback if not planning to keep any files there as video files will tend to chew up hard drive space. But by having the files on the main drive especially here where video is captured live for temp storage on C and then backed up on a secondary storage drive for so long which includes surveillance footage from testing security systems as well as analog captures since digital is most easier to simply upload from a camera.

    The end result however is what you are looking for there as far as smooth playback free of issues as well as getting the best viewing!
