If it is possible to re-format to get the flash drive to take larger files please tell me how to do it.
I'm running Windows 7 & the flash drive is 32GB.

Limitations of the FAT32 File System
I've heard that FAT32 files cant be more than 4GB, is this true?
You cannot create a file larger than (2^32)-1 bytes (this is one byte less than 4 GB) on a FAT32 partition.
If i can put my two cents in, You do not specify what is the format of your file but i am guessing it is a video format if it is over 4gb.
If your blue ray does not read NTFS file system but only FAT format why don't you reauthor your video file into a fornat that as smaller files like a dvd movie format (.vob), with some programs you can decide what is the size of the files (VOB).
Unless your blue ray cannot read if they are split but only as one file, i would try that.
That sounds like the only option if it comes to it........split the files & put them into one folder. The Blu Ray player should play the 'next' file when it finishes playing the current one. I didn't want to go to that hassle but if it needs to be done i'm going to have to do it.
The files i have are AVI files, High Definition, that's why they are taking up alot of space & are such a large file size
