I download hd movies which are around 7 gigs and try and drop them into my 16 gig flash drive and it says drive is full. My flash drive is completely empty and has plenty of capacity for this file. Is there a specific limit on the size of a file that won't permit you to drop it in a flash drive??? It's bizarre because I put a 6 gig file (band of brothers standard def entire mini series) in the flash drive with no problem, and I have also dropped smaller hd files into the same flash drive. I don't get it.

Is your flash drive formatted to FAT 32? I.E. can you use it in a ps3?

Look up on google, "How to tell if my flash drive is NTSF or FAT 32"

If it's FAT 32 the largest file you can have is 4 GB

Ok so I made a new volume, and now I can get NTSF to pop up under format, but every time I try to format it. I an error that says windows was unable to format.

I tried a different program and got the same result. i just figured out i can't format to NTSF because my xbox wont read it which its my sole purpose for using the flash drive.

try that maybe?

1. Open a Elevated command prompt, or a command prompt at boot.

2. In the elevated command prompt, type convert drive letter: /fs:ntfs and press Enter. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: Substitute drive letter for the drive letter of the FAT or FAT32 drive or partition that you want to convert to NTFS. For example, I want to convert my USB flash key with the drive letter G: , so I would type convert g: /fs:ntfs and press enter.



3. When the conversion to NTFS is complete, you receive the Conversion complete message. (See screenshot above)
NOTE: This may take a few moments to convert depending on the size of the drive or partition. My 4 GB USB key only took a few seconds though.

4. Close the elevated command prompt.

NTFS people - not NTSF. It stands for "file system."
