  1. whenever i download videos (and this happens most of the time), it'll say it's like 20 minutes long or the file is over 150mb.. but when i hit play, it only plays about a minute of the video and the sound will keep going. this happens frequently, can anyone help??

    What are the format of the files you have tried (avi, mpg, wma, etc.) ?

    What media player are you using to view the files (window media player, winamp etc.)?

    Are you familliar with codecs or divx stuff?

    Is there any possibility that you are trying to play the video files which are not completely downloaded or may be still in process of downloading?

    Some of the files you have downloaded might be blank files. But I have no idea how many of the files that you have downloaded could be blank. Are experiencing the same problem with every mpg video file?
