Question about Western Digital 500GB My Book World Edition 500 GB Hard Drive
The External Works Great except this.
I have some ISO files on my computer and when i try to copy (or cut) them from my Internal HD to my External, i get this following message:
If picture doesn't show i have a link here
This applies to ALL ISO files. DVD Rips. Game Rips, or files that happened to be stored in an ISO.
it for some reason works for other image files like .uif but won't for ISO.
All other files copy over but this.
I talked to many people (computer nerds as people would call them) and they all had no clue why it would do this.
If anyone can help me that would be good. I can free up to 20+ GB by being able to move them over.
Well from what i have observed from the images is that you are using the FAT32 file system and FAT32 is designed in such a way that the maximum allowed file size (size of a single file) on a FAT32 based file system is at most 4 G and whenever u try to copy a file of size more than 4 G, you get a "Disk Full" error. This is pretty normal.
So, it would be better that the next time you think of re-installing windows, make sure you format the drive(s) using the NTFS file system so that you wont face the error again.
Workaround: You can split them up into parts of an archive of 100 MB size so that they can be copied onto the external drive without any problems. (use WinRAR)

Extract the ISO file,put stuff into a normal folder and delete the old ISO image file. Copy and paste the bunch files you got from the ISO file, into your hard drive.I just did this and it worked.hope this helps.
