    I didn't know where to post the problem so i posted here.

    I extracted a DVD movie from winrar and when it reached 100%.

    only NTFS file system supports file larger than 4 gb.

    This file is an image file and I extracted much before no problem. and then i tried extracting another DVD same problem occured

    if i understood you correctly you formated your drive to fat32 instead of ntfs.
    maybe you are extracting to some other drive (external?)
    your main drive is probably formated as ntfs, extract there and than burn on disc, or reformat your fat32 drive to ntfs (backup your data, this destroys everything)

    if you want to store that large file on your external fat32 drive you have to reformat it to NTFS

    You can convert the drive to NTFS using the following command:

    CONVERT P: /FS:NTFS /NoSecurity /X

    Enter that command in the Start/Run box, but replace the "P" with the drive letter of your external drive. You don't need to reformat and you won't lose any data.

    The entry "/NoSecurity" is needed to enable you to move the drive between systems.

    The entry "/X" forces all open files to be disconnected. You should close any files first, but this will allow you to continue if some piece of software won't release a particular file.

    One point to remember, once you've done this you won't be able to access the drive on systems that do not support NTFS (such as Win9X and Linux).
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
