Not working in Windows 8

  • Hi there,

    This is not working in Windows 8. The driver loads, you can read the ext 2/3/4 partitions and assign drive letters etc, but when trying to open a file direct from the drive within windows explorer it fails.

    What i've seen so far:

    .DOC - works
    .PDF - works
    .TXT - works
    .PPS - works
    .XML - works

    .XLSX - FAILS
    .JPG - FAILS
    .AVI (MPEG,MKV etc) - FAILS
    .MP3 - FAILS

    Kind Regards,
    Peter

     
  • It seems that it is only certain applications fail - for example opening an AVI works with UMPlayer but DOESN'T work with VLC

    Hello,

    I use Windows Server 2012 and I have problems with audio and Video files from a ext4 partition. I use VLC too and it makes problems to play. I tried a other player e.g. MPC-HC and there isn't problems. In VLC I hear stuttering sound.
