I used to keep a large number of various video files (mostly recorded tv shows and such) on discs as files rather than full dvds. Recently I got myself a 1tb drive and sorted media center so it can play everything, all this with the intention of moving all my old stuff onto a drive for nice easy access with media center and a remote.
However whenever I try to copy the files back to my pc it either doesn't work or takes forever, literally one 4.7gb dvd with 11 350mb files took over 8 hours once and it still wasn't more than halfway done.
I've done some checking and apparently it's due to the way vista deals with networked/external drives and large files (thanks bill real helpful feature). But i can't find anythign anywhere about how to actual either disable this feature or just let me do what i want. So does anyone know how i can go about getting this to work properly.
I'm running vista 64 sp1, with the media center tv pack that was put out along with just about everything else i could find to try and no joy.
