Hope someone can help me, trying to copy 3d files from laptop to external hard drive(verbatum 500gb) but a file of 5gb will not transfer from laptop to external drive saying file is too big. Help please:lease:

The external drive is probably FAT32 rather than NTFS. FAT32 has a filesize limit of 4GB. You will either need to split, or compress (zip - possibly split RARs using Winrar) the file, or re-format the drive as NTFS - though if you format the drive you will have to copy everything over to it again as it will wipe it.

Hi, when i try to play some movies off my hard drive onto my samsung tv or through my samsung bluray player it comes up video codec not supported and sometimes my hard drive disconnects part of the way through a film the first happens on certain films and the latter can happen anytime. Any help would be great thanks.
