Re: 24 Bit Audio Burning Question

Most likely you're using a file system that only supports 2 GB files as I've created ISOs (on a Linux box partition formated with the ext3 file system) much larger than 2 GB. On that partition right now I've got ISO files of 3.3, 4.2 and 4.5 GB.

A 2 GB file size limit probably indicates a FAT16 file system, used by older versions of Windows (FAT32 supports 4 GB maximum file sizes while NTFS supports up to 16 EiB file sizes, an Exbibyte being a couple of orders of magnitude larger than a Terabyte). If you're running Windows 2000 or Windows XP (or probably Vista, for that matter) you should be able to convert the partition to use NTFS, I have no idea if that's destructive to the data on the drive or not having never done it.

Probably your best option is to back up the drive contents, reformat it using NTFS (or some other file system if you're running Linux) and then restoring the data to the drive. Or write your ISO files to a different drive that has a compatible file system.
