Re: All Large (~3GB+) Files Download Corrupt

This might be a really dumb question, but you are using a file system that supports file sizes larger than 4GB? Given that none of your OS testing worked, I'm guessing the file system is an unlikely culprit, but it's all i could think of.

There are no dumb ideas! Yes, they all support large files. I can download huge files over things like bit torrent no problem (because the files come in small, verified pieces). It's only large, single files that break.

I don't think it's any sort of time out on Verizon's end because I can sometimes download these huge files faster than smaller files (ex. a 3GB file from Microsoft at 42Mbps vs a 150MB file from some random website at 500Kbps) and even though the connection is open just as long or longer for the small file, it arrives intact.

YES ALL file systems now days support file sizes upto 17 billion gigabytes (Exfat) in size

So unless he is running windows 98se he is fine

Well, does your car at least turn into something else? Sometimes I turn it into a trashcan. Hmm...

Not so, I have seen XP systems running FAT32 (4GB max file size) Also, removable storage such as USB thumb drives and SD cards are nearly always FAT32.
