    OK I just bought this usb storage device: http://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-Cruzer-Blade-Flash-Drive/dp/B002U1ZBG0

    My problem is that whilst its 16gb I just tried to put a file that was around 5gb on it and it says the file is too big to put on the drive. I tried formatting it but that made no odds. I use windows 7 and the pen drive is currently set to fat32. Does anyone have any suggestions, or could it be that the drive is faulty?

    Cheers.

    Apologies - no need for a reply, I discovered it was the fat32 thing. Re-formatting to NTFS seems to have solved it. (wrote this before i spotted your reply Guinevere - but thanks for responding :))
