Tom,

Nope, it's actually a limitation of the Windows file system. FAT32
doesn't support files larger than 4GB, or something like that.
NTFS may not, either; I can't remember. And believe me, it's very
easy to exceed 4GB streaming DV to a hard drive.

Yes, I did some research and you are right about file system limit. Video for Windows and FAT both have 2 GB limit, FAT32 has 4GB limit and NTFS practically has no limit. So on XP if NTFS file system is used, there is practically no limit on file and partition size (considering you use newer capure drivers that does not have the 2GB limit).
