Why cannot I not get an 8gb file onto my 16gb cruzer micro?

Hi There,

 

I have just purchased a 16gb Cruzer Micro Flash Drive for the sole purpose of playing HD Movies via my Netgear EVA8000 as some won't stream from my NAS.  I've just tried to copy a movie (they are in the .mkv format) to the drive and it says "the fille is too large for the destination file system".  What does this mean?  It's not too big for the drive surely as the file is only 8gb and the drive is 16gb.

 

Help!?!?!?

it is a limitation of the FAT32 file system. FAT32 only supports a single file size of up to 4GB. to transfer files larger than 4GB you will need to reformat in NTFS. below are instructions if you do not know how to do this.
