It is not clear:
Is it the memory stick that is not being recognised...or the file?

the memory stick

Check the formatting of the stick. It must be a FAT 16 or FAT32 partition.


These are all the requirements:

USB memories which are defined as USB mass storage class, and digital cameras that use PTP protocol:

USB memories that support USB 1.0/1.1 and USB 2.0 Full Speed/High Speed.

USB memories of up to 128 GB can be used.

USB memories that support bulk only transfer.CBI (Control/Bulk/Interrupt) is not supported.

Digital Cameras which require additional programme installation when connected to a PC are not supported.

MTP (Media Transport Protocol) device is not supported.

A multi-port USB card reader is not supported.

Format

FAT16 and FAT32 file systems are supported.

UDF/NTFS/exFAT file system is not supported.

Depending on the sector size, some files may not work.

Only the first partition on USB memories with multi-partition is supported.​

Thanks - sorted now.
It had multiple partitions :(
and I also found out that the video has to be DivX encoded

It plays fine now but the recorder will not copy this file over to either the HDD or to a DVD
