I have recently bought the pi and have set up raspbmc as i want to use it as a media centre.
I have a 16Gb SD card which it boots from and an external hard drive connected to it which is a 1TB USB 2.0 drive. I use a Y usb wire one connected to a usb plug to power the drive and the other end connected to a USB extention going into a USB powered hub which is going into the pi. The drive is mounted so xbmc can pick it up.
The main problem I am having is all my videos keep freezing after every 10 seconds, I know the file is still playing because the video duration is still counting.
I even converted one of my videos thinking it was the video format being the problem casuing it to freeze but even a MPEG-4 AAC 720p video froze.
I have no problem streaming videos, IT IS only videos that i play from my external hard drive which makes no sense to me at all becauase it should be playing videos flawlessly if it off a usb drive
Does anyone have any idea of what the problem may be. I would appreciate any help
