    What is the limit of a file size on SD card?

    I just tried to move a large file into SD and it won't let me do it saying the file is too large for the file system of SD card. It is FAT32 and I assume it has to be.
    So, can I not copy a movie (about 5GB) into SD card?

    thanks guys

    Does it matter as long as it is larger than the file I am trying to copy?
    it is 16gb.

    4GB (4GB - 1 byte if ya wanna be technical) is the max file size for FAT32 filesystems. There is no workaround that I know of, just a limitation of FAT32.
