    I'm having the same problem as a closed post. My folder C:\Documents and Settings\DJ\My Documents has almost all AVI files. When I open it in my computer explorer has to close encountered a problem error then closes. File view is in list. Any other ideas?

    No problem with even larger video folders on USB external drives.

    You have to turn off the Data Executive Prevention and set the program manually.
