    iPod receive Error code 0 when I try to transfer over 4GB
    When I try to transfer a file that's over 4GB onto my iPod, I get error code 0: "Sorry, the operation could not be completed because an unexpected error occurred."

    I've read up, and I've found that it's because it's formatted to MS DOS (FAT), but I've also read that that's the format you need in order to be seen on both Mac and Windows. I've just had it fixed, and it used to be able to take large transfers AND show up as an external harddrive on both Mac and Windows.

    What do I need to format it to? It would appear that my options in Disk Utility are Mac OS Extended, Mac OS Extended (Case Senstitive), Mac OS Extended (Journaled), and Mac OS Extended (Case Sensitive, Journaled).

    Thank you for any help!

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '11 1.8 i7 4GB 10.10; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.10; 5s & 5c
    There is no format except FAT that can be read and written to from both OS X and Windows without 3rd party software.

    If you wish to use it only on your Mac,then the native format would be Mac OS Extended (Journaled).

    Is there a way I can make the FAT accept file larger than 4GB?

    No, FAT32 is unable to store files larger than 4GB.
