If the file plays from another source then the issue is the storage. The 1073 is a very old chip. It may not read modern drives properly. Many are dual 4K Sector MBR and GPT. The 1073 is only normal 512b sector MBR limited to 2tb. 

Splitting up the drive won't help. The player code expects one partition per hard drive and so only mounts the first.

Users have had succes by using a USB enclosure which makes each partition to appear a seperate a USB drive.

I can confirm that the MED1000X3D plays any size up to 4 TB at least in one partition; can't speak to MED500X's ability. Sorry it couldn't be resolved before having to resort to reformatting. I know from first-hand experience, it's  no fun.
