The MyBook drives came formatted FAT 32...and I actually have same
problem with both of the MyBooks. Yea, some of my video files are
probably over 4 GB! My Hard drives in the PC are NTFS. So I guess I
am going to have to use about a hundred DVDs to get the files off of
these two drives and re-format to NTFS. Or get another internal NTFS
drive and move everything off the MyBooks to the new NTFS drive.
Sheesh...I didn't realize that leaving the MyBooks FAT 32 ws going to
be a problem.
