    What format file system is your removable HD? If you are not sure, right hand mouse click on the portable HD's drive letter in Windows Explorer and click properties.

    Is it NTFS or Fat32?

    I have had a similar problem when trying to move very large files.

    Re: error when copyingavi file from memory device

    I thought as much my post <!post=12 Gig File,584435>12 Gig File<!/post> I had a real issue with a 12 Gb file that would not transfer across (a virtual server and contents, hence the size). If you read FAT to NTFS it will provide instructions on how to make the conversion. Apparently there is a science to the problem as it allows large file copying.

    Of course back up all your files onto your main PC first and then make the conversion as per the instructions. It really is worth the effort to do this as I stated in my post that it really makes a difference <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    If l do that will have have to re-format the drive and therefore have to re-install windows?

    Not your operating system...the portable device the external memory that DOES NOT have windows on it, just your files.
