Captured video file exceeds the FAT32 4-gigabyte file size limit
The video file created when you capture video exceeds the 4-gigabyte (GB) file size limit supported by the FAT32 file system. This message occurs if you are capturing video at a higher quality setting on a volume or partition that is using the FAT32 file system. The file system is used by MS-DOS and other Windows-based operating system to organize and manage files.
To fix this problem, do one or more of the following:
- Reduce the amount of video you capture in Windows Movie Maker.
- Choose a lower video setting for your video.
- If your computer hard disk has multiple partitions, and one is formatted using the NTFS file system, go back in the Video Capture Wizard, and then save your video to that partition.
- Convert your file system to use the NTFS file system, which does not have a file size limit.
To fix this issue, do the following:
- Save your current project in Windows Movie Maker and then close Windows Movie Maker.
- Close any open applications.
- Convert your file system to use the NTFS file system. For more information about converting a volume to use NTFS, see the topic "To convert a volume to NTFS from the command prompt" in Windows Help and Support.
