After I've installed ML, I am no longer able to copy files from my macbook pro to an external flashdrive (USB Pen) It tells me the file is too large to copy, alltho' Ive never had this problem b4 ML.
Looking forward for some help.
How large is the file you are trying to copy? Can you copy any at all, including a small file? How much disk space does ML show available on the USB Pen?
the usb pen holds 32 gb, all free. its fat32 formated, so I can see files on another machine (not mac)
The file I am trying to copy is 5 gb.
I tried formating, but I still have the same problem.
FAT32 only allows the storage/transfer of file sizes 4 GB and smaller. That's why you cannot copy it. You need to format the pen drive to either NTFS or HFS in order to copy file sizes larger than 4 GB. There's no other way around it.
Thanks, I formated to exFat, and it seems to work. Is there any way to format to NTFS on a mac?
