    Have noticed of recent that when i am watching movies on my laptop (avi's) after about 30 min the movie will freeze. at first i thought it was the file but trying files that i have known previously to work i have found that they also freeze now.

    i have also noticed that when trying to upload files via FTP they will freeze half way and timeout.

    i have run disk verify, and it has come back fine
    have tested the RAM using techtool pro and that also came back fine.

    any ideas?

    To Add,

    I have just tried transferring some of these files to my USB drive and i am also unable to transfer some of them.

    I can use adobe/office/firefox and no problems though,

    What software are you using to play the avi's ? You could try to trash the .plist files of that program from ~/Library/Preferences, empty them from your Trash Can and reboot to see if it changes anything.

    The FTP problem, I'm not sure of, but they may not be related to each other.
