Ok, this happens sometimes when I download videos. You'll open the video in WMP or some other player, and it will say it's like 30 seconds long, but then if you click to a further part in the movie, it will show that the video is actually 5 minutes long or something. But if I just let it play all the way through, it will only play the first 30 seconds of the video.

Where are you downloading videos from, and does this shortening happen in all players? When you check the properties of the file, is it consistent with a long or short recording? Can you download music and other files okay?

I just tried it with the VLC player and it played fine.. Weird that it won't work with WMP.

All other files are fine.
