    I've heard a lot about the fat32 problem where your DL stops when it reaches
    4GB. Before i start mine i would like to know if there is any way around it using the Windows ME os ?

    thanks

    i think the only way to stop this is to go to XP and use ntfs - though the limit only applys for single files of >4GB, so if your dl is multiple files (eg vobs for a dvd-r) then youll be ok.

    most files you download above 4GB are multiple rar files. then you can download it if you use FAT32, but you are not able you extract the file.

    If you have multiple files in the rar for example 4 files of 1 GB then you are able 2 extract them 1 at a time.

    Newsgroups has a filesize limit, and it shows up on newsgroups first. (most of teh time)

    Also if your download becomes corrupted you'll only have to download 50mb again instead of 4000

    Edit: scribblec I dont think theres a problem extracting a 4gb file on XP

    You Better Keep In Mind That I Can Read Between The Lines


    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to there level and beat you with experience!!
