.avi file won't play on mac
 
Hi, I've got some .avi files on my Dell laptop, and I wanted to copy them to my MacBook Pro. I tried copy all of them but one avi file is corrupt. it says that the size is 0MB. But on windows I can play that file without any error using VLC. Even when I converted that single avi file to mp4 i got the same error. does anybody know the answer? I just want to play that file on my MacBook

its sounds like its been corrupted in transfer. just transfer it over again via a USB stick or hard drive. make sure you eject it properly, dont just pull it out.

What are you using to play them on you Mac? Did you also try VLC?

I tried a few times, but always the same error. And I used VLC to open the file...

if the file is Zero bytes on the Mac and larger on Windows, it's getting corrupted somehow when copying. How are you copying the files? Flash Drive? Network?

I tried both, windows workgroup network and USB stick. Now I transferred the file using a privet torrent, it looks like it worked :) but I'm still wondering why...?
