PostSubject: B-rip transfer question.   Sat Nov 06, 2010 9:14 am

Just got all 3 LOTR on B-rip. I tried to transfer them from my had drive to the missus hard drive so that we can watch it through her blu ray player,. as mine won't show up on her blu-ray player (i think cos it needs to be formatted to FAT 32).

The problem i'm having is that when i try to transfer the films to her hard drive i get a message saying that the file is too large for the destination file system. Yet there is more than enough space on the hard drive, around 50GB in fact and all 3 films only total around 14GB. Is there something i'm missing???

Fat32 doesn't support files larger than 4GB.

What a pain in the ass that is, so is that because hers is formatted to FAT32?

I thought it was maybe because my hard drive was in NTFS format so i tried to format it to FAT32 (so that it could be accepted by her Blu-Ray player and my PS3. I followed so instruction on the net i found. It appeared to be working and was going through the format process, then once it had spent about 3 hours or so formatting, it waits till the end to present me with "the drive is to large to format to FAT 32" shout

So what am i doing wrong???

Can anyone advise me (in an idiot proof way) as to how to format this drive to FAT32 help



The instructions i used
Quote :
START
RUN
CMD
Then type in the following: format /FS:FAT32 x:
replace x with the drive letter and Vista will format the device without any issues

As described above there was an issue for me

Bear in mind that I'm no authority on these things but I think that you're stuck; With the Blu-ray player anyway ... What's the make and model number?
With the PS3 I think you'll have to copy them onto the internal drive ( Unless Sony decide to include NTFS support at some stage ).

If you mean the make and model of the hard drive then i'm not sure, it was off ebay. It just says ATA highspeed

Well, since I don't own a PS3 I'm not entirely sure of all the ins and outs but hopefully you can follow the instructions HERE.
