    look at the drive the file is on, and do a defrag analysis of it, you may need to defrag your drive.

    I have exactly the same issue, although my avi files where some 25gb's in size... a little too large.

    I had to defrag as every time i went to play any kind of movie file on my d drive the whole thing locked up and i had to end task. My drive was like 80% fragmented. Now they all work great.
