FAT32 split .mov's rejoin
on Aug 3, 2010 at 11:34:38 pm

hi all!
i have a problem; once i captured from miniDV on a Mac using FCP, but i was working on an external disk, wich was formatted with FAT32 filesystem, because i had to use it on a pc too, i captured long scenes, as they were bigger than 4gb each, FCP saved the media files (.mov) splitted in several parts; example.mov was saved as example-1-av.mov, example-2-av.mov, example-3-av.mov, and so on, each file is 1,99 GB.

Now i'm not using Mac and FCP anymore(sigh) and i need to use these files on a PC, suggestions on how do i join these pieced files to get the whole original .mov? i don't have access to Mac and FCP anymore...

thanks in advance,
Alessio

How can you join then into on large file, if you need to use them on a PC and the drive needs to remain formatted Fat32....thus keeping that 4GB limit?

How do PC apps deal with this limit?

I used the FAT32 removable drive only to share it between Mac and Pc, now i've copied the files on a ntfs hard drive!

The only way I know that will work is to use your Windows editing application, connect all the truncated clips together, and export new, complete clips.

the problem is that my Windows program (Premiere CS5), recognizes only the "example-1-av.mov", the first piece, while on the others it doesn't recognize the files, popping an error like "invalid header"

If you can't join the clips together, you need to recapture the video.
