Why won't video play smoothly when saved on laptop Internal hard drive, but runs fine on external USB and external hard drives?
I've got a
Toshiba Satellite T130-13L running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit with 4GB RAM and a Genuine Intel(R) CPU U4100 @ 1.30GHz 1.30GHz.
Graphics: Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Mobile
The problem I have is that videos I have downloaded from online and saved to either my C or D drive will not play smoothly on any media player I try (using latest versions of VLC and Windows Media Player, with most up to date codecs available), it will play for a few seconds, then stop, then play again. Almost as if I was buffering an online video. Yet, when I copy the exact same file onto my Corsair 16GB USB stick, or my Western Digital Elements 1TB external hard drive, the video plays fine.
Really stuck here, I have tried looking everywhere for help. Does anyone have any ideas as to what to do?
