    I have a 60GB flash drive with 15GB free space. I'm trying to move or copy a 4.4GB movie iso file to the flash drive. I get an error message saying that there's not enough room on the flash drive. I've tried two different Flash drives with adequate empty space and I get the same message. I actually made the iso file from a standard dvd using imgburn. Anyone have any idea what the problem might be??

    what format is the flash drives in because if fat16 then can only take a file 2.1gigs max in size were as fat32 can only take a 4gig file in size? sounds like fat32 to me so try reducing file size to below 4gigs. hard drive have the same problem so is not a flashdrive only issue.

    Thank you. It is FAT32 and I completely forgot the size issue with that format.
