    I'm trying to transfer a 5gb file onto my Eris. The SD card is mounted, and it shows that 7gb is free. I am able to copy over a 1gb file to and from, but when I try the 5gb file, I receive the following message:

    The disk in the destination drive is full. Insert a new disk to continue. Retry Cancel.

    If I click Retry, I get the following:
    Cannot copy (filename): there is not enough free disk space.

    What's the deal? Anyone know how to get this to work?

    I believe this may have to do with the format of the SD card. Fat32 cannot have a single file over 4gb I believe.

    I may be wrong, but I've ran into something similar with a flash drive.

    Correct. 4gb limit on FAT32. End of thread.

    I'm not sure if it's the end of the thread. Someone might have a work around. Possibly formating the SD card in a different format or something?

    Want 5gb files? Get a USB flash drive.

    End of thread.
