Hi there.
Click on computer/my computer, find your external drive, right click on it and choose properties, you will get a new window, in the general tad look for where it says file system, if its says FAT or FAT32 then it can't take a file of that size so it has to be reformatted in NTFS.
If you need any help on how to do this post back.

Good luck

Make sure its formatted in NTFS format, FAT32 can only handle files upto 2GB
To be able to formt it to NTFS you have to go to Device Manager and set the policy of the USB Stick device to "Optimize for Performance". The default is to optimize for Quick Removal, which restricts you to the FAT filesystem

    Also make sure you use the disconnect media before unplugging it as you may lose data if you dont since you've not disabled the quick removal option.

  • Fritzelly Apr 21, 2009

    Unless you specifically set it to NTFS it will be FAT32

    Goto Start/Control Panel, select Device Manager

    Make sure the usb is plugged in

    Under Disk Drives you will see the drive along with any other hard drives

    Right click the usb drive and select properties

    Click the Policies tab

    Select Optimize for permformance and click ok

    You can now format to NTFS

Perhaps, break the file down into two or three parts. Put the files in a folder.

4.7GB sounds like a DVD video. Compress this file down.

Step 1:
Problems with Verbatim portable hard drives vary depending on your model of hard drive, your operating system and your computer hardware. Some problems can include insufficient USB power output, the file system format, and potential overheating due to enclosure materials.

File System b> Verbatim portable hard drives come formatted for use with Mac computers. If you're using it with a Windows or Linux computer, you will need to format it to a file system that your operating system will recognize; Windows computers typically work with NTFS, while modern Linux distributions use ext4. If you have computers with mutliple operating systems, FAT32 is usually considered easier for all operating systems to recognize. Verbatim does not recommend switching a portable drive between PC and Mac computers once you've formatted the drive one way or the other. Adequate Power While most computers supply adequate power with one USB port, older computers can have insufficient power output. If your computer doesn't seem to be powering the drive, use of a Y-shaped USB cable, designed to be plugged into two USB ports, can get more power to run the drive. Additionally, consider trying different USB ports on the same computer; some USB ports get more power than others. Drivers b> Make sure that you have any relevant drivers related to the hard drive that you have purchased. If your drive didn't come with a setup disc, you can check the Verbatim website for product drivers. Overheating b> Of Verbatim's seven portable hard drives, four are enclosed in plastic; of the other three, one is enclosed in aluminum, one in leather, and one in rubber. While all the drives are tested to run well with their enclosure, metal enclosures conduct heat away from the hard drive and help to prevent overheating. Plastic, on the other hand, is an insulator, so plastic enclosures may contribute to heat buildup. Check plastic-enclosed drives for overheating and avoid leaving them plugged in when not in use.

File too big for my verbatim hdd


While you can either try compressing the file and it might fit on.
Make the file smaller.
Delete what you no longer need.
Or get a bigger hard drive.

I have a dell pc, every time i drag a movie file to the portable drive, it says "Cannot find specified file. Make sure you specify the correct path and file name." What am i suppose to do??


Make sure you are not dragging a "short-cut" file - this is not the actual file. Locate the actual file and try that - verify it's the actual file by reading the properties extension such as ".mpg".

Hi,

If you format your Hard Disk then all files will be deleted thats why if you insert your Hard disk to DVD player then it will show that the file is not available.

I have a Verbatim 250USB drive and have never had a problem with it until I attempted to copy some HD movie files to it from my computer's hard drive. I am attempting to copy .mkv movie files to the...


firs:
try to format your hard drive, then try again.

if you still cannot do it, do a low level format, using this tool:
http://hddguru.com/software/2006.04.12-HDD-Low-Level-Format-Tool/

if you still cannotdo it, it may be a harware problem. try to copy a big .mkv file like that from another pc, to be sure it isn't your pc's fault, if you can do it, then it's your pc, if you still cannot it's the disk.

in the firs case the troublesooting is quite difficoult but if you post your system configuration i may help.

in the second case if allso a low level format fails, then i don' think we can do something for youo... you should get assistance from the manufacturer....
hope this help,
Paolo.

The smartdisk 250gb external hard drive is dead


You could always remove the drive and hook it up to another computer .

That would confirm if it is either the enclosure or the drive.

If another computer can read the drive directly then your files are safe.
If not then chances are you have lost them.
