SDHC file structure

I recorded part of a speech last night onto my SDHC card and noticed when I downloaded it to my computer that it was broken up into two 13 minute clips and one 5 minute clip. The SXS card that held most of the speech was just one big file. Is there a way to get the SDHC card to just record one long file too?

That's how the file system works. Reassemble in your editing program.

The card format used by Sony (SxS, SDHC, Sony hard drive, makes not difference) is FAT32 which as a 4GB file size limit.

Sony XDCAM Transfer will use the .smi file to stitch them together when re-wraping to .mov.

OK, thanks guys. Everything worked great, just wondering why the difference.

If you use the Sony transfer utility, all the segments are rejoined... I only use SDHC cards and I don't have a problem.

OK, I use XDCAM Transfer and it keeps the clips broken down into seperate files. I rejoin them in FCP and it works fine, just more mouse clicks than there should be.
