It seems that your trying to play a video that the media player does not support. The video works on your computer because the computer supports many more video file formats that the media player does. Make sure that the video your trying to play has a .mp4 file extension after the file name, meaning that it is a mp4 file. Try another known working mp4 video file.
good luck and i hope this has helped.

i had the same problem but i had a read of the manual and there should be avi converter with the mp4 player in the form of a mini disk you have to make sure it is at the right resolution i think mine is 320*240 and if it is not the right resolution it will just keep coming up with file error, just make sure the resolution on the avi converter  matches the resolution on the mp4 player
