Something in Windoze Explorer doesn't like the movie file extensions (mkv, avi, etc.) Try renaming the file with a jpg extension. Once copied, rename with the proper extension.

Your explorer crashed because of a plugin installed by the DivX Player. Uninstall that and your issue should be solved (you are using VLC anyway).

Like FineWolf mentioned, it's the DivX explorer plug-in (DivXMFSource.dll) that is causing the crash. It's a known problem for over 3 years, just google for the file name.

You can uninstall DivX all together or just disable the explorer plug-in using Shell Extensions Manager from NirSoft (google for ShellExView, can't post links yet).

Ok, I'm learning. I have NirSoft but don't see that plug-in anywhere,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Nor do I see it the System32 folder (if that's where it should be)?

It is unfortunate that he still has nonfree software in his computer.

He needs to defenestrate it (which means, either throw Windows out of the computer or throw the computer out of the window).

Try using a file copy manager. I use supercopier on all of my windows machines (xp and 7). Always get better transfer speeds and haven't had any problems yet. I've transfered several multi-gigabyte avi's to and from my tablet without issue.

I basically used AirDroid to transfer anything to my tablet. Wireless and it's not slow. No problem at all. =]

I'm not sure I follow you. Are you having the same issues? Do you have DivX installed?

I don't have DivX installed (I use Xvid), so I don't know if it should be in system32. If you are on W7 x64 and DivX installs a 32-bit plug-in in the system folder, it will probably in C:\Windows\SysWOW64, not in C:\Windows\System32. This might also explain why you might not see the plug-in. Try running ShellExView with the /wow64 command line parameter (as mentioned on the original download page).
