    I am getting a disk is full message when I attempt to copy a zipped file to a usb flash drive.
    I have Windows XP SP3. The zipped file is 5.2 Gb and the flash drive has 7.47 Gb free space.

    I tried stopping the drive, removing it, then reinserting it without success. It still says the drive is full.

    Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem is?

    Just an idea: make several small zip files less than 2 GB each. I am not sure that a USB key supports files larger than that.

    What format? I believe FAT32 has a maximum transfer size of 4GB (and FAT16 has a limit 2GB)
