Tom OwenVegas Pro 11 loading long files over 5GB

I use a Panasonic HMC 150. Because it formats the SD cards in FAT 32, there is a 4GB limit on the length of the file. That works out to about 15 minutes.
When I shoot a long-form show (30-60 min or more) and load the file chunks to the timeline. I get audio dropout and sometimes black frames at the transition point. I have not found any function in Vegas that will cure that problem.
I have found a program call tsMuxer that will stitch all of the file chunks together using a binary copy technique. On drives formatted to NTFS it will create one long file. I suspect the practical limit is around 20GB, but the shorter ones work fine.
One problem. Vegas appears to load from the media bin without a problem, but it only puts 1:30 of the clip on the time line.
I did find that Corel Video Studio 4 will happily accept the file at any length and play it back flawlessly. As will Premiere Elements, although it takes a long time to digest it.
Does anyone have a solution? And buying a $1600+ program is not the answer!
