I have a dashcam (nextbase 512) and was watching my protected/saved clips from the past month on my PC, directly playing them from the SD card though, not downloading them. Got through about 25 clips (with another 15 to go) then suddenly "VLC media player cannot read this file" and the folder instead of displaying all the video files now displays:

this is a brand new [genuine] card and this has happened on 2 other cards. never has been an issue, leaving any permanent damage (apart from losing the remainder of the video files) after a format, but just wanted to know why it happens.

usually after watching dozens of 2 minute clips very quickly skipping through, etc
