    I also recently purchased a WESTERN DIGITAL 250GB PASSPORT USB PORTABLE but the problem is i can't copy large files.. 6 GB up.
    there will be an error saying the "NO ENOUGH SPACE''. even if the free space is still very large. Small files copy OK but the large files always get refused. I am trying to copy from my D: drive (250Gb) to the USB portable on F: My C: drive is an 80Gb drive.

    I rebooted the PC but the fault remained. I ran Disk Cleanup on my C: drive which returned 500 Mb to me and my C: drive is reporting 21 Gb free. the fault remains. I purchased this USB disk to back up my video files and I find this fault very annoying.

After posting the above, I found the answer on another forum about 10 minutes later. The WD drive is formated in FAT 32. My XP PC HDDs are formated in NTFS. FAT 32 has a 4Gb file size limit.

Answer. Format the WD drive in NTFS. It takes about 10 sec to do a quick format, but of course you lose all the content. Then You can copy anything you like to it. I have just copied a 33Gb video to the disc.

You failed to mention what operating systems are involved. What does the work computer use as an operating system. The file system format of the USB may be say as an example ntfs windows while as a hypothetical the work computer could be apple o/s using a different file system or even maybe a unix system. You may need to reformat the usb stick to be the format file system used by the work computer. Also there could be a policy in place to prevent usb sticks working on work computers to protect intellectual property or to protect against virus transferance.

You need to re-format your Flash Drive. The default is FAT32 which only allows files of up to 4GB to be transfered. If you reformat to NTFS, ANY size file can be copied to your FLASH DRIVE.

WARNING ! ! By reformatting, you will loose ALL your data on your Flash Drive. Good Luck

Some computers will not support a large 8GB stick. The best some will do is 2GB, If you are running a computer pre-2001, you may not be able to use the 8GB stick (I have the same problem with my desktop PC). It just is not supported!

32-bit self-extractor module .exe file not working on USB


Self extracting exe files tend to run unzip once they start. It may be that the usb drive is getting full before it can unzip the files or it needs to run the files on c:. You are far better copying the file onto the target computer and running from there.

run a check disk on the memory stick - most likely a good indicator that the flash drive is on its way out as they normally have a life span of about a year or two.
