What format are they in?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

He didn't say anything about them being copyrighted movies. Don't jump the gun please.

That would be the filesystem the drive is using. I'm referring to the format of the files themselves. It would help if you could at least share the file names with us by clicking on the file (once), pressing Command + I, and reporting back what it says here:

Unfortunately, that doesn't tell us a whole lot, since AVI is just a container that can be used for a number of difference video formats. Usually the file name will tell you a bit more about the format of the video.

Sorry that I'm not much help. I'm not anywhere near my mac. But I thank very much for your time. If I may email at a later time it would be greatly appreciated. Enjoy your night. Thank you.
