yeah this happens to me sometimes on my External. You can't fix it; it means the HDD's file system is the older FAT32, so it can't have a file on it over the... 3 gigs I think? You need to find a split-up version.

Your external hard drive is formatted in FAT32. It needs to be formatted in NTFS or you can't have any files over 4GB (Or whatever the limit is. I think it's 4.)

Here's how you can convert it: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307881

It's asking for the letter of your drive.

Sorry, I was wrong about that. It's asking for the name of your drive as it shows up in explorer.



I highlighted mine to show you.
