Can’t Transfer Large Files to LaCie External Drive
I picked up a LaCie Little Disk 320GB hard drive to store some files I’d previously had on my iPod Classic. I have several large data files that are upwards of 8GB. When I went to transfer one of these over, the transfer failed at about 4GB with the following error message:
- BACKUP ANYTHING YOU HAVE SAVED ON THE DRIVE.
- Launch Disk Utility, select the external drive you want to reformat in the left hand column.
- Go to the Erase tab, set the drop down menu to the file system you want to use (Mac OS Extended…), then click Erase.
- Your new external drive will be ready to use.
