Trouble with transferring video files

Recently I’ve been teaching myself all the works of recording, copying/transferring videos to PC, editing them, then posting to YouTube. BUT I keep running into the problem: every time I copy a 15 minute video from my PS4 to my external harddrive (exFAT) then plug that harddrive into my computer (hp laptop with windows 10) via USB, some I am not able to view, some I am able to watch until a certain point, and some I’m able to view the whole thing. It’s all random. Some 15 minute videos work perfect. Some don’t. Side note: the first time I copied videos I did it in bulk. It took forever but then I read up the bigger the file, the more chance it will be corrupted. But if it’s only 500-700MB it’s not like it’s multiple 10 GB worth of files. Now I just copy one 15 minute, 600-700 mb video at a time. But I’m still not able to get that perfect video everytime. It takes multiple times to go recopy and all that. Is there something I’m doing wrong that might affect the hard drive or the files within?

    It might be a simple as the USB port not being compatible. Are they both USB 3.0 ? How old is the PS4, what version and what is it's internal drive capacity? What make and model is the Seagate device ?

    What video you are getting? What are your source of getting of video that you edit & upload? Are these sources (that you are getting) have copyright? Is there somehow demo version? Have you updated with latest software?

    Without knowing the original video source, everything will be guesswork. And even then, there will still be guesses. It's nearly impossible to troubleshoot hardware across the Internet via a Q&A forum.

    Every device, every port, every connection, all are suspect. And software for every action also will be, including any OS. Further, specific procedures for each operation need to be detailed.

    If the same equipment, configured the same, isn't available, little or no testing can be done.
