I’ve been using my external hard-drive for a while now and I keep running into the same problem.
Everytime I try to copy large files I get an error message telling me that the external hard-drive is full and that there is not enough disk space. However, in My Computer the hard-drive has 292GB of free space and I know I’ve not filled the thing up.
I’m trying to copy some raw footage in a file that is about 9GB in size.
What is the problem and how can I fix it?
Some more detailed information:
Western Digital My Book Home Edition 500GB
Connected to the computer using a Firewire card and cable (I used the card to get the raw footage onto the computer from the camcorder in the first place, so I’m almost 100% sure it’s not that)
The File System is FAT32 (whatever that means)
I’d appreciate any help I can get really, I need to get a lot of footage onto this drive and I can’t because of this problem.
