file transfer

Hi. I.m trying to tranfer a 13.4 GB Mp4 file to a new 32GB sandisk cruzer but when i try t transfer it I get the message “file too large”. 31 GB freespace on the cruzer. what am i missing? thanks

it seems your usb is formatted as FAT32 which only accepts files under 4GB you should format it as NTFS if you wanna transfer files over 4GB

Do NOT format it as if it is a hard drive.  It is a flash drive, so use exFAT if you need to store large files.

NTFS uses journeling and adds extra i/o to the drive.
