What do you mean it doesn't play? Do you get an error message? What are the movie file formats?

@Ambucias.My movies are mp4 format. No i dont get any error; the vlc just opens and does not proceed to play the video. If i try another media player(potplayer), gives a notification that says "Video does not exists".

I suspect that your MP4 is corrupted. Can you play any other videos?
All the videos i copy to the flash disk play on my laptop well. The problem comes in when copied to the disk. Sometimes the disk even deletes them itself; if i plug it off the next time i try to use it, some folders are empty. I think the formats and player media does not matter much because this happens to all video format i put in it. Is there a way to fix such a disk?

The flash disk and computer can be infected by a worm virus

# Download USB Fix click here
  • Launch it, a shortcut will be created on your desktop.

  • Choose "Clean" option.
  • A pop-up will follow
    Connect all your external data sources to your PC (Usb keys, sd cards external drives, etc...)
  • Once you're ready, click "OK".
  • While cleaning, you will lose access to your desktop, but this is normal.

The numbers of analyzed and infected elements are displayed.
