I had a hsbs mkv file that is 18gb and it plays and all but when i forward or skip the movie it freezes for about 20mins to 30mins then plays again and that's from an external hard drive with a P8400, 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB, 4GB 1067 MHz DDR3 and am thinking will the a6 3500m do the same thing ?
via USB2.0 speeds,
a file of ~15GB and less should play Flawlessly...
more then ~15GB can result in stuttering via USB2.0 ,,,
best to use eSATA or USB3.0
