Sumvision Cyclone media player - not playing some files


Standard Member

I bought a Sumvision Cyclone with a 500 GB harddrive pre-installed.
I loaded a 27GB file full of avi anime episodes, some play perfectly, some play for five seconds, and then skip the episode; some have visual, but no sound; others have sound but no visual, and skip after a few seconds.
The player is formatted for NTFS, and when I check the files on my computer, they are all avi's and *should* be playable on the Cyclone.

I am completely at a loss as to why - could it be different codecs?
Any help would be very gratefully received.

AVI can cover a lot of different options, you might want to look closer at the files and see which sound formats and resolutions you are using then see which ones are not working and compare to the ones that are.

Thank you so much for the help!
I checked the files that wouldn't play, against the ones that would in 'Properties' and they all seemed the same.
I converted two of the episodes to DivX, and so far so good - they both played perfectly!
Thanks again!
