    Hi Guys
    I convery an AVI file to H.264 and put it on a USB stick. Then using Clearfi or Astro I open the movie and watch it. Trouble is, it plays for a seconds, then pauses, then continues and pauses over and over and over. Remember the old days when on poor internet you would watch a movie and then it would stop while it buffered and then started again.
    This is what it is like. Can anyone else watch a movie from a USB stick

    Then why cant you copy the file from the USB stick to the Tablet. I use Astro and go into the USB stick, then edit and move, but when you select the movies folder and paste you get a move error "move failed message.

    What media player are you using?. Try rockplayer or moboplayer with its additional code both can play in either software or hardware mode, these two players will play any video format...
