I have a simple tech external drive, 500G. I recently saved some WMP video clips, from the same web site, directly onto this external drive in ONE folder over the course of about 10 days. There are about 100 clips. The clips saved the first few days will open with no problem, but the clips saved the later few days get the following error:
"Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored".
All other clips stored on this drive in any folder play with no problem. I also cannot copy or delete or rename any of the clips that won't open. I have VLC player and Media Classic Player, but neither will open the files that won't already open in WMP.
I have searched online for a solution, but have only found that maybe I need to change some sound settings in control panel, disabling enhancements, which I have not found as an option on my version of XP. I have also found information about security tabs and sharing, but have not changed anything yet. I cannot find any solution to this problem. Thanks so much.
