Error Code- 1309
I researched this error after i had it appear when i was transferring a 6.5 gb file to my External HDD. It seems that Fat 32 can only transfer up to 4 gb at once or per file.

So heres my question, is there anyway around this? Can i split the file then put them together once they are on the drive?

I know this may not be helpful, but I receive the same error trying to expand an archived file that is just over 4gb using the latest version of Stuffit Expander.

Not with FAT32.

Four GB is just a limitation that cannot be worked around. You can split files for the sake of storage, but they will need to be reconnected on a HFS+ volume to be used.

The 4GB file limit is one of those great decisions that sometimes get made. 4GB limit on file size? Surely nobody would ever have a single file that big?? :)
