Cheers, I'm new here. Been lurking around for quite some time as I am messing around with my WD HD since May this year. A great device, but in the past few months I've come across over a couple of problems that I'd like to solve.

The most urgent one is that there are some video files I have that just won't play smoothly. The sound is fine, just the picture will stop about every 10 seconds and continues after approx. 2-3s of being frozen.

The files are in the following formats:

audio: 128kbit/s / mpeg layer3
video: 24bit / 1093kbit/s / Xvid

I know, usually it should work. Any idea why it doesn't?  :-\

Try defragmenting the hard drive.  You'd be surprised how many problems can be solved with that.
