    Took a nice 45-minute video on Xmas day with my 950. It uploaded to the PC but I can't put it on removable media. It's 5.8GB, too big for a DVD. Tried to transfer it to a new 16GB USB thumb drive but I get a "file too big" error on the PC. Tried another blank thumb drive; same thing. PC is running the latest version of Win 10. I'm stumped.

    Strange, what about compressing it down using winrar or 7zip and copying that onto a thumb stick - just to see if there is anything weird going. Also you can get DVD disks that can take 8.5 Gigs of Data.

    Check to make sure the USB stick is formatted to NTFS as opposed to Fat32 (not sure if that is even possible, but NTFS should easily be able to handle a 5.8GB file)

    Thanks for the help guys. Reformatted to NTFS instead of FAT32 and it worked.

    For future reference, NTFS and exfat both support files larger than 4GB. Fat32 does not.
