Can't transfer files larger than 4GB to a fat32 HDD?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I recently went atv riding with my uncle and 4 other blokes, we recorded GO PRO HD footage and because the files are huge, I put them into 720p as opposed to the 1080p they where. anyway to cut to the chase I rendered them into one clip which turned out to be 6.86 GB in size, now I have tried compressing winzip/winrar and nothing I still can't get the file to go below 4GB.

I really don't want to re render it because it took 5 hours and 20 minutes @ 60FPS @ 720P :S

Is there something I can do to transfer this file onto my HDD but still keeping the file quality and resolution?

I also have tried burning it to a disc but the only hold 4.7GB frown.gif

I am so frustrated with this right now, I mean my crap mac with a an old 5400RPM 250GB drive can handle more than what is in my computer. windows annoys me.

I can't reformat the HDD to NTFS otherwise my mac can't read it, I can't even shrink the file size down so I can put the video on a 4.7GB disc to burn.

/rant.

You can use a dual-layer DVD to burn, it has larger capacity.

the 4gb max file size is a limitation of FAT32, you should just put it on something that is formatted in NTFS

Fat32 only lets you save files that are up to 4.1 GB. What you should do is get another blank hard drive and format it as NTFS. Then transfer your recording on to the new NTFS drive.

Edit: If you are on a Mac, format the new disk to HFS Plus instead of NTFS.

you will need to split the video or put it on somthing with ntfs i thk you might be able to convert your fat32 to ntfs without losing data.

I can't because if I do put it onto an NTFS format for me to then transfer it to my mac to then see if the mac osx will actually work unlike windows in compressing the files into a .zip

so in short mac's don't understand NTFS.

I can't do that, although I am trying now to see if I can reformat the HDD to the HFS plus you said but I need to transfer the files off the HDD first.

I don't want to risk that, when you reformat something data is lost :S

Mac can read ntfs just fine, it just can't write to it. At least snow leopard can, pretty sure leopard could to. Unless you have the ntfs "driver" which can read and write on Mac

yeah that's right. there are a handful of programs that allow you to write to NTFS as well. I don't know of any free ones off hand.

Nope, thats why my HDD is formatted into to partitions, one for mac and the other windows. For some reason NTFS wont work on my mac. I am running 10.6.7 btw.
