watch a movie on a memory stick

Specs: Windows Vista
I have a movie on a memory stick that i would like to watch. i tryed to watch it using windows media center/player. i'm really not sure how i got it to start, but all i got was the audio and some physco light show but no picture.
I looked up some tutorials to understand what to do. After about 3 hrs. i can't get anything, now. i tryed to sync this thing, but that didn't work either. i followed all the instructions, but my name is not bill gates.i'm using vista. why would anyone make this process so agitating. i got a driver inmy playlist, but there is nothing there. even though the sync results, notes no errors.
this is a good indacation why people don't use their computers to the fullest. the tutorial sucked. how do i setup my computer to watch something stored on a memory stick?

The fact that it's on a memory stick is not relavent.
You need a player that play the file correctly. Without knowing the file format ie; mpeg, avi, divix etc. we can only guess.
VLC Media Player is free and plays a wide range of formats, you can download it from: http://download.cnet.com/VLC-Media-...

well, i responded to your request about file format, and have downloaded vlc media player. so far i haven't received any info base on my original question.
by the way all that stuff i had to download to get the vlc player has really, really slowed my computer. so, i have uninstalled all of that garbage.
thanks for nothing.
i'll ask someone who knows what i'm trying to do.

I don't know what "all that stuff" you downloaded was, all you had to get was the 17.6 mb VLC file which has been downloaded by over 136 milion people, so there are a lot of people using it without problems.
If that slowed your computer, you have a problem.
VLC will play AVI files, no problem.
To view file type, open a folder click on tools, then folder options, click view and untick "hide extentions for known file types.
