Would anyone happen to know why when I attemp to play video files in the
.MOV format with QT player from my secondary internal hard drive I receive the following message:

Couldn't open the file "138810" because an unknown error occurred. The
number of the error is: -8971

I have two hard drives in my computer one that's 160Gb used for XP and other
programs and the other is 250Gb used as a mass storage drive that I keep all
my videos on. When I browse to one of the QT .MOV files it gives me an
error message.

Seasons best!
