    I have had the galaxy tab since xmas , the main problems i have had are with playing media from my 32gb san disk sd card and my 32gb san disk usb flash drive. i have formatted both to fat 32. Once i have begun playback of movies etc the player shuts down and refuses to play files. Usually after this , i am told my s.d card is blank . My sd card is not blank or damaged. When i try and play files from my 32gb flash i struggle to get the tab 2 to recognize and open the contents of the flash drive. Once i finally access the files i begin playback of movie/tv then an error occurs, playback stops and the tab will not recognize the flash drive anymore. the files i am playing are only avi's . Is anybody else having similar problems. One of the main reasons i bought the tab 2 over the i pad was to play these media files, have enough storage for my movies, music etc. the usb adapter is also fine, I have bought 2 and have had the same problem with both.
    Also in answer to persons wondering about using larger mass storage devices, i do not believe the tab 2 will recognize them as i have tried my own to no avail, have also been on other forums stating this.

    Tried you different players, eg. MX Player?

    Yes harry , i installed the mx player, hasnt changed anything. Files will play and then stop after 15/ 20 mins. Although when i play these avi's it doesnt give me the option of using the mx player

    MX Player is able to play .avi ... but you'd go in its Settings > Decoder ... and uncheck H/W Decoder and check S/W Decoder for Lokal.

    Using the other players S/W decoder instead their H/W decoder might even solve your playback stopping problem.
