MP4 files wont play - show 0bytes file size - ja3hawk - 11-29-2012

First time using OpenElec. My MKV movies work fine and look great. I have a couple of different directories that have mp4 files. They fail to start any playback and show a 0 file size. They play okay across the network to another Windows PC.

I'm on a wired ethernet network.
The content is on a USB hard drive attached to a SYNOLOGY NAS, but ultimately it's just an SMB share. I still have a feeling I'm dealing with a permissions issue though. The MKV content is an SMB share as well but they actually sit on the drives within the SYNOLOGY not the attached USB device.

I'm running Beta 2.95.1 (next step may be trying 2.0 stable)

on this hardware:

I would check the permissions of the files before anything else.
