I am trying to transfer imovie projects that are about 20gigs each from my mac harddrive to an external harddrive. Lacie 320gig
When I transferred a 20 gig imovie project to the ext hd, it wouldn't complete it. giving me message -1039
I READ that you can't transfer larger than a 4gig HOWEVER I had innocently transferred an imovie project that is 8gig and that worked.

What are my options to get that 20 gig piece onto the ext hd....

Download and install NTFS support for your MAC, Then get the drive reformatted to NTFS, then you can easily support files sizes greater than 4GB.

Hope this helps!
