luckily i bought a new one recently so i can work, but i haven't had a chance to move my stuff from the old mac to new,
i just hope i can recover some of the data on it!
Try mounting it with an external SATA connecter. When my hdd failed, I found that while windows wouldn't load, I could still browse the disk by doing this. If you have a macbook air, you'll need a Zif to SATA converter to do the same thing.
@Moby, how big are the video files, and what error does it give, and in which media player is it trying to open?
Various sizes, mostly small-ish. nothing near 4 gig if thats what you are thinking
I split the stick up into 8 directories, and put less than 8 gig in each one. Since the original transfer, I can add files and they will play. Wonder if its a windows 7 anomaly?
