    I'm stomped. I always formatted my SD Cards on the BMPCC using the exFAT format and every time it records from the BMPCC flawlessly. I am able to copy the files off the SD card to a hard disk or thumb drive that is formatted as exFAT as well. Today, after I shot 3 SD Cards of footage on my BMPCC, I am unable to offload it to an external HD formatted as exFAT. I had a few ProRes HQ files that are 8G in size and every time it tries to copy those file, I will get an error telling me that the file size is too large to be copied over. By the way, this is on a Windows 10 Pro OS. Has anyone encountered this problem?

    This happened to me just yesterday. I was copying BMCC footage to a thumb drive. One of the files was larger than 4TH and wouldn't copy. I re-formatted the thumb drive to exFat (even though it already was exFat) and it worked fine. I am also on Win10.

    I hope this helps!

    Thanks. Dkatter. I had some files on the drive but I will copy it off and reformat the drive. Then I will try the copy again. That's a strange that it won't copy on an existing exFat drive.

    Not all factory pre-formatted drives are actually ExFat, some are just Fat, which has a file size limit. This could be the issue. As previously stated, try reformatting the drive.
    Cheers
