Try using VLC media player. Windows Media Palyer is bad!

yep..
But what are your pc's specs...some older hardware won't be able to play HD video (the kx records at 720pp if you don't change the default options...)...So maybe it isn't entirely WMP's fault if your computer is old.
If it isn't a hardware problem then Vlc will probably solve your problem.

could it have something to do with the way the HD is formatted? FAT32 or whatever

Well depends on the size of the video really...Fat 32 will only handle files of less than 4 GB...so that might be it..but your HD (if it's the one you have your system on) should be ntfs...
(and if it was fat32 i'm not sure you would be able to copy files larger than 4GB.)
How old is your machine??
