    I just downloaded subtitles for Kill Bill Vol. 2 and read that I had to place them in the same folder as the movies and name them the same thing... except dont change the file extension.

    Anyway, I did that, although, every time I open the folder with the movie and subs... windows explorer shuts down and I have to open the folder again... only to have it happen over and over again.

    Anyone have any ideas why???

    Try accessing the folder with the command prompt and move the files manually to different locations while you work out what's wrong.

    No idea why it would do that tho.
    We can't stop here... this is bat country

    Well, I surely dont know why it is happening, hence the post but that would be nice if it disappered magically. If anyone else has any ideas on why it's happening, and a good remedy, that would be peachy keen!!!

    Another thing I noticed is that the subs I downloaded for this movie runs the subs all the way through the entire movie. I only want the parts that arent in English subbed. Do I have to go and manually go through the text and remove those parts or is there another download that has only the Japanese(subs)??

    Anyone know?? Thanks

    Im guessing the movie is slighty corrupt so when explorer scans the movie to make a nice little image for you with the file name it crashes.

    set the view to list and see what happens.

    Try turning off webview in folders?
    if your font size is this small i'll add you to my ignore list because you're wasting my time, OK?

    Well, I didn't have any problems before I moved the subs files to the folders that the movie was in. The folder opened fine, now it says Windows Explorer has to shut down, and closes the folder and sort of resets my desktop.

    I cant change the way it shows the files in this particular folder, as I stated when I open the folder... it shuts it down. I do have another copy of this movie on my machine, which doesnt have subs at all in it. I thought the one I had just acquired had the subs... but no go. Anyway, when I try to access the original movie that I have ... the same thing happens... Explorer shuts it down too... and this never happened before with this one either. So, I am wondering wtf happened!!!! UGH!!!

    I probably will just delete both of these files and maybe get it from someone else.

    Thanks all.

    music master, at the comment about the eniac weighing only 1.5 tonnes.

    when i was researching the ENIAC for a school assignment i read a quote by someone that said something like "i beleive that in the future computers will have over 40,000 vacuum tubesand weigh over 60 tonnes."
    lol.

    Back on track to my original problem. I had thought it subsided... but alas, the problem has returned. It has nothing to do with subtitles that were added... It has something to do with movies in general. I dont understand this... but it seems like randomly downloaded movies, when I open the folder that the avi or mpegs are located in ... shut explorer down. Has nothing to do with how the files are viewed. They can be viewed as icons, listed or tiles... and its all the same. They are not viewed as webpages either. I cannot open or even access the actual folder to make changes on it using windows... so if anyone has any ideas on what is causing this and how I can fix this... if possible, and maybe doing it in DOS... please lemme know.

    Thanks!!
