    Missing video files


    Here is a strange one. Wonder if anyone else has had this problem. I moved some files from downloads folder into videos folder and they are gone, sort of. The first thing I noticed is that the thumbnails were now all the same as were the video lengths however file names are still right and file sizes show as being all different. When I play them they all play the same video. Any idea where all my vids have gone? This has happened twice now. I thought the first time maybe I did something wrong but not a second time.

    Hello Mark, how did you move those files ? Did you actually move them from folder to folder or thru playlist, player itself or..... ?

    Hi. Thanks for your reply. I just dragged and dropped them from one folder to the other.

    All at once though. So strange that file sizes stayed as they were but all went to the same 4 minute play length that one of them had. 2 of the six transfered ok but the other 4 did not.
