    And a window pops up on VLC saying:

    Unable to open 'D:\4700394e3b0c8d241acdd2900cc00166\My Downloads\Harry Potter And The Sorcerers Stone CD2.avi'

    It's a sign that you should wait and buy legit media - or maybe the files are actually corrupted. How did you fix your invisible files problem?

    Play them where they work

    Do you have a seperate partition or hard drive for movies ?
    You should to stay away from Windows control.
    I guess you know theres 2 types of avi's . Windows original
    or Divx.Try Divx Player.

    But these posts on "missing files" doesn't add up.
    I never lose control of where mine are.
    Movies on D and Music on E.

    Hi Zipperman, My 400+ movies are on a separate Drive, and windows used to be on it but i had a bad problem with it... i tried to reformat it, but since its a SATA drive i messed it up and didn't use my Bootable SlipStream DVD Correctly. so, there is a weird half OS that dosent work so i use it
    for storage.

    and my movies are not legally protected by copyrights.

    thanks for your post xjoesullix but my movies aren't corrupt.

    And LNCpapa why would i need to buy legit media when i can download for free and the movies are just fine?
    Someone posted and i fixed my problem with the "invisble media" this way:

    Most access denied messages are usually solved by logging in as

    administrator (if your not already) and "Taking ownership" of the files/folders,as described HERE

    The reason it says 0 bytes is because Windows doesn`t think you have

    the rights to know this information.You have to tell it that you do

    My movies also cannot be moved out of the folder:

    Access is denied.
    make sure the disk is not full or write protected
    and that the file is not currently in use.
