    I just installed boot camp in FAT32 format, so I can transfer files from mac to boot camp. So I tried to move a .nrg file into the boot camp hard drive icon, from mac, but when I tried to move it, it said error code 0. Found out FAT32 has a 4gb transfer limit. My .nrg file is 6GB. So now I'm wondering if there is a way to divide the 6gb .nrg file in half?

    Short Version for lazy readers: Is there a way to divide my 6GB .nrg file in half? Thanks

    I believe this is what you're looking for. However, the question arrises, whey are you using FAT32 in the first place? Full NTFS write support is available through NTFS-3G. FAT32 volumes can also easily be converted to NTFS using the "convert" command through the CMD window.

    Well I installed Boot Camp as FAT32 because I wanted to be able to drop files into the windows hard drive from mac. Is there a better way for this?

    He's saying to "key in" in a shell program, as in, type the following in a shell. In your case you'd be using the "Terminal" application in the "Utilities" folder.

    Yes, if the 4GB file-size limit matters to you. You can convert the windows partition through NTFS (search google for instructions) and then install this on the Mac side to write to NTFS-formatted partitions.
