This is more an observation than a plea for help.

Today I tried to copy a pile of MKV vids that I had on my Pc to my KFHD.

With most files this is just a matter of drag & dropping but with these files every time I tried the Windows Explorer would crash and stop working.

I finally found a workaround by giving the files a totally unregistered and unrecognised file extension (*.mp4avi instead of *.mkv). The files would then copy over no bother.

I use VLC for video playback so I haven't installed any extra codec for MKV on the Kindle, so would this be why the Windows Explorer crashes when copying these files?

I have had the same problem copying mp4 files, I thought I had fixed it by extending the timeout on the Kindle to 30mins but today when transferring files it crashed Windows explorer again, by logging in & out of Windows & using another usb port allowed me to continue.
Next time I'll try other usb ports again.
