    Help with USB

    Yesterday I've got a new USB:
    Patriot Xporter XT Boost 16GB Flash Drive (USB 2.0 Portable) Model PEF16GUSB.

    Before that I had an 8 GB and when I wanted to get a HD movie on it to watch on TV it said that a single file can't be bigger than 4 GB.

    THE QUESTION: What's the max. size of one file now? Is it 8 GB or it's still 4 GB?

    Thanks + Rep for good answers

    Cool
    You have to format the flash drive to NTFS. FAT doesn't accept more than 4GB.

    ^This. Just rightclick on your Stick in the explorer, and choose format, set File-System to NTFS, and youre fine.

    Everything should be NTFS. Hella better than FAT.

    I usually format my flash drives to FAT32 anyways. Very rarely do I have files that are 4GB+ that I need to transfer, and when I do, I have much larger storage devices that are NTFS.

    this is why buy a USB portable HDD, (not a one that runs on power), partition 2 sections on that drive, 1 NTFS, 1 FAT 32, then you can do 1 for movies via tv etc, and 1 for computer file tranfers.

    So if I format it to NTFS, the file size will be able to be bigger than 4 GB but wouldn't work on TV?
