Exporting QT mov to Flash drive
on Oct 4, 2012 at 2:39:34 pm

I am in FCP-7 (uptodate as much as I AM allowed). The PROBLEM:
1. Exporting timeline as a QT mov. (960x720 Hd) (6.59gb) and save to a large Hard drive.
2. When I try to transfer that QT mov to a 16gb flash drive, I keep getting an Error (0) message. And it won't take it.
3. I tried another Q. T. mov with a lower gb (4.5gb) and the Flash drive accepts it.
4. When I export the timeline from the FCP timeline as a qt mov directly to the Flash -- it accepts it.

There seems to be enough gb in the flash drive. So why won't the flash take this qt mov.

Thnks for any clues. Stan spnorton@comcast.net

Could you be bumping into file size limitations due to the formatting on the flash drive?

I was thinking that too Dave, but according to his post he can copy another file over 4GB to the Flash drive.

"3. I tried another Q. T. mov with a lower gb (4.5gb) and the Flash drive accepts it."

And he can export directly to the flash drive

"4. When I export the timeline from the FCP timeline as a qt mov directly to the Flash -- it accepts it."

Thanks for your comments. It is mystery. When I do export directly to
the Flash Drive from the timeline the QT mov. (which is actually 6.64gb) is broken into

QOP2012.mov 2.15gb
QOP2012-av1 2.15gb
QOP2012-av2 2.15gb
QOP2012-av3 236MB

I would like to have it contained in one qt mov. thanks for the help.

Ah ha. That makes more sense.

Fat 32 drives have a file size limit on them.

Double check the file structure of the drive.
Right Click on it and choose Get Info.
If it says Fat32 it will need to be reformatted to HFS and the you should not have any problems.

One reason why Flash drives are fat32 is for cross platform use. Reformatting to HFS or NTFS limits the ability of Win or Mac cross compatibility.

Thanks so much for your advice. The Flash is indeed MS-DOS (FAT32). I have tried to reformat but to no avail. How do you reformat this flash?
