- What's the speed (MB/sec) when copying such a file from your external to your internal hard disk. And what speed is needed when viewing the movie (GB of the movie / nr of seconds of the movie: for example, a one hour = 3600 seconds movie of 3.6 Gb = 3600 MB) needs 1 MB/second?
Like a majority of people, I spend a lot of time watching tv shows and movies, and recently whenever I play downloaded videos directly from my hardrive, the videos continuously buffer, glitch and lag, as if i'm streaming the videos online.
I've tried to backup and format my hardrive to no success, and i've scanned it for viruses several times. I'm currently watching the same files directly from my computer and it works fine. I've used vlc, quicktime and windows media player, still to no avail. Any help at all would be very much appreciated.
