Error Code -1309
on Apr 6, 2006 at 11:35:12 pm

I'm often needing to transfer large amounts of video files from Final Cut over to PCs. I purchased an external Firewire drive to use for this and found that the only way to copy and read files on both OS X and XP is to format as FAT32 which is what I did. However, I'm constantly getting the transfers stopping part way through when I drag a bunch of large .movs over to the drive from OS X saying "Error Code -1309". I read somewhere that this may be a problem with the FAT32 format not being able to properly handle files over 4GB in size. Is this true and if so, is there another way to have a fast mobile storage that can be read and written to by both OSs? Transferring the files over the intranet is just too slow.
