    Ok, this is weird - and I haven't been here for a while so apologies if this has been posted recently and dealt with elsewhere.

    Anyway, just rebuilt my PC and reinstalled Kazaa lite. Have just finished downloading what should be an AVI file. However, when downloading the file downloads as a DAT and normally becomes an AVI on completion of the download. Not this time however. Very strange. So I changed the file type to AVI just to see what would happen. Nothing on my PC will play the file however, if I run it through TMPGENC it appears to start encoding BUT it tries to turn a 700MB file into an 8GB file. Never experienced this before or heard of anyone else experiencing it so all help greatfully received.

    Cheers,

    Lash

    Wish it was tat simple but had been checking it out with AVI preview and it was fine. Also like I said, I tried to encode it and that was working too. Unfortunately, it has now vanished from my hard drive and no matter how hard I look, I can't find it.

    Very strange

    'Fraid so!

    Searched by name, by file type, by file size (there aren't many 700MB files on my hard-drive, believe me!) It is gone. Had this problem before when I've been halfway through a large download and suddenly the file simply vanishes.

    Anyone with any clues??
