ever since windows 95 drive letters self assign to the next available one, never had a issue with genuine sandisk memory sticks on pc's but some of the usb 3sticks don't like some devices, in fact I have my windows 10 install on a 16gb sandisk and I have used that plenty of times, Make sure you do not have any security software on the stick and it formatted in fat 32

software wise vlc plays most formats http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.en_GB.html

What size mp4 is it some devices do not like anything bigger than 4gb in one lump

Try converting it to divx http://www.divx.com/en/software/converter/features that should give you the best compatibility across platforms

I want to say thanks to everyone for their opinions and suggestions :thumbleft:
The problem has been resolved.

Try that I did and again, thanks again for your suggestions, I had put an mp4 video on to a sandisk memory stick, and the recipient was unable to watch it on the TV or laptop. I tried it here, and it works no problem, I even tried it on some person that I don't know TV and it worked, although I did (as I figured) have to "point" to where it was.
So in desperation I went to get more memory sticks, almost everywhere you go have sandisc memory sticks (I was wanting to get them to the recipient as fast as possible) I just happened to look in maplin and they have "maplin memory sticks" thought, only more money to loose :angryfire: guess what ? :huray: They worked first time on anything the recipient tried it in.

So it seems that even though I had formatted the sandisk sticks and tried some that I hadn't formatted sandisk memory sticks are not for me (Which agrees with what aeromech3 said earlier)

So does anyone want any sandisk memory sticks :lol:

Thanks again everyone :salute:

_______________________________________________________________________

If any one is wondering, yes I do have a "smart phone" but it needs to have some app downloaded to be able to view forums, but the reason I will not do it (Nice suggestion though) is .................I have a tablet for work, we get sent the odd "online task" to do, I have to forward it to the pc as on the tablet its too small, so imagine what a forum is like on a phone. Yes I know you can "pinch it bigger" (if that's what you call it) but that causes a problem of, I don't know where I am on the page as to be big enough to read there are only a few words on the screen, I dread to think what a forum is like on a phone.

To try it, Click here its the first pdf with text I found, now tell me you can read all of it on your phone with ease, I can't.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Why don't we have a 'fcuk you' button? :dunno:

Judging by the last reply I think 'that' was it.

Not at all kellys_eye. If I had of intended to say as you suggest I would have said so myself.

I find that when you can not see a person, be that on the phone, via email and yes forums, you form an opinion of what a person looks like or how they are and their abilities, but when you meet that person you find that you have got it all wrong.

You put your (childish) principles above those of a generous and charitable offer that would cost you nothing. Nothing.

That tells me all I need to know.

Never assume anything, as assumptions are often wrong.
But do have a nice Christmas every one.
