The drive being rendered/exported to is formatted FAT32...a PC format...that has a file size limit of 4GB. So the export, that is larger than that, is being split up.

You need to format the drive as MacOS Extended...also known as HFS+.

IT Admin, huh?

Going on the assumption the format of the drive is the issue....

You need to reformat the drive and reinstall the OS to change from FAT32 to anything else. In fact, any change in the format of the drive requires a reformat.

However, if this is a Mac, the OS drive should NEVER have been FAT32 in the first place. Shane was referring the the drive the Media sits on...which should NOT have an OS on it. Boot Drive = OS. Media Drive = Formatted, but no OS.

I'm assuming your media IS NOT on the OS drive. Go into DISK UTLITY and verify the media drive is, in fact, FAT32. If so, move the media off of the media drive, and use DISK UTILITY on the Mac to reform the drive to Mac OS Extended (not journaled). Format and name the drive the same name it was (this makes it easier for FCP to find the media without relinking) Copy the media back. Relink in FCP if you get media offline messages.
