    Default Help - new to Andriod and Archos - How do you play movies from an external SD card??


    To start with - hello, This is my first post.

    Help please. I recently bought an Archos 97 carbon tablet mainly for my knd to play movies on. however as it has limited memory space (16gb) I also bought a couple of 32gb mini SDcards. My problem is that I have loads of movies and TV programs saved on a external harddrive that play fine on my laptop and, when i save them to a standard SD card, on my TV view a media player. However when i try and copy them to the mini SDcard around 95% won't play on the tablet - says cannot play this file type!! The files are a mix of file types so I cant even say it's only one type that doesnt work!

    Sorry if this is a really stupid question but it has been frustrating me for days!!!
