    Hi there first of all im a newbie so sorry if this is a stupid question.

    What I have been trying to do is transfer a .mkv video file which is 4.37 GB in size from a hard drive which is format NAT32 to one that is FAT32. So what I am wanting to do is split the video file in 2 so that I can transfer it to the FAT32 because I dont mind watching 1 part then the other.

    So is there any application out there which will allow me to do this?
    Or could you please talk me through how to do such a thing.

    Thanks in advance

    I you're comfortable with the terminal, you can use mkvmerge which is a part of mkvtoolnix. If you want something with a graphical user interface, MKVtools will do that for you. Google will help you find them.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Im not familiar with terminal but if it wasn't that hard and could be walked through it then id happily give it a go.

    Alternatively I looked up MKVtools and it looks like a good option but I see that it is a .exe file and I don't have a clue how to extract it or what program to use to do it.

    If your not familiar with terminal, MKVtools might be better for you. There shouldn't be an exe file. Did you find this one?
