Solved!

2 GB file too big for empty 32 GB Micro SD card in HP Stream 7?

HP Recommended

Could not move a 2GB video file from C drive to 32GB Micro SD card.  Got an error message that the file was too big.  I formatted the micro card after inserting it and moved several photo files to the micro card without any problem.  Is there a setting to remove the file size limit?

 

FYI, I was able to save the video file to OneCloud, though.

Hi!, m9040n_user:

 

The MicroSd, of 32Gb., after format, with FAT32, have only 29.71Gb. available.

Can you check, the remanent bytes, of MicroSD, after move, or copy ?.

 

Note: Please read the difference between FAT32 and NTFS format, from ... http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2421454,00.asp

 

Best Regards.

Maké.

Kind Regards !.
Have a nice day !.

Hello m9040n_user,

 

When you say you formatted the card in the tablet, I assume you used either EX-fat or NTFS.

Either format should allow for large files to be placed on the SD card.

 

I would ask how you are moving the file and are you sure the SD card is selected.

 

If the SD card is EX-fat formatted, try NTFS to see if it makes a difference. It should not matter, but worth a shot as some have reported problems with EX-fat working properly.

NOTE: Reformatting will wipe all files off of that drive so make sure its backed up.

Reformatting the micro SD card using NTFS eliminated the file size problem.  Thanks.
