have you scanned this folder w/your anti-virus? sounds like their can be one in there, if it is acting funny ....when you open it.

also , you probably don't want to save these on your hhd, since they will eat up alot of space on your hhd, and if your hhd should ever crash....

say good bye to all those movies, i would invest in a dvd rw-drive and burn all those movies to dvd. then you can watch them on your comp. or ywer dvd player.

well, keeping lot's of movies on yer hhd , will take up space....that's fine if you want to keep em on there.

it could be that there is other stuff on your comp. that needs to be cleaned out....have you run the defrag. on your hhd lately.....

this will help to speed things up.
