    Thought I would try this here since it seems a lot of people are having problems with the new Seagate Wireless Plus hard drives. My movies play fine on computer, Galaxy S3 Phone, and TV (when plugged in via usb, never could get it to work with my vizio tv wirelessly either). My movies will not play on my Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, I get an error saying "format not supported by current applications". These are .avi files. When I move the files from my computer to my tablet they work fine. The movies play fine on my S3 which has the same operating system and seagate app. I tried accessing via browser and it still wouldn't work. I bought this item specifically to use wirelessly with my tablet and it's sad that it won't work at all. If anyone has any ideas or knows a fix for this, please let me know, thanks.

    Looks like you have to convert the files to MP4.
