L.T.W. Posted March 21, 2009 Report Share Posted March 21, 2009 Im using my iPod(80Gb) as a hard drive for one of my classes and in this particular class we are working with Win2003Server Ed. and with the latest version of Fedora. We use VirtualBox so we can switch back and forth between them. The OSs are 2 image files [that started] around 3gb each, but the Windows one keeps on growing as we add more stuff to it (obviously), suddently it reached the 4.5Gb and I got a message from inside Win2003SE that my hard drive had run out of space. I thought that was quite weird becaouse I had like 50Gb of free space, so my professor told me to move it to the desktop to work in class. At the end of the class I needed to move the image file back into my iPod, but as I attempted to do so I got an error message saying the my iPod was out of space. This puzzled both my professor and I and we couldnt find a solution. He told me to defrag my iPod and he thought that would solve the problem, but after doing that, I still got the same error message. A friend of mine also recommended me to partition the file with WinRar, and it worked. I was able to move the file in 700Mb pieces, but I wasnt able to copy it as one huge file. I still have like 40Gb of free space, so whats going on? Could it be that the iPod configuration forbids the user to copy files over 4.5Gb in size? And if so, how to change that? Any help?
