    I'm trying to store a 6.7 gb file onto my ipod nano (3rd gen) and it is formatted as FAT32 so its max file size is around 4gb. Is there a format that will allow me to store up to 6.7gb in a single file and if so how can I format my ipod to it.

    My ipod has nothing on it and I don't really mind if I have to mess it up to fit this.

    If you restore the iPod using a Mac, you should be able to write a file greater than 4 GB to disk. Bear in mind that it will only be readable by another Mac, though.
