In Finder, select the hard drive to which you want to copy the files and choose Get Info from the File menu. If the format of this hard drive is listed as FAT32 or MS-DOS, you will need to use Disk Utility to reformat it to one of the extended Mac OS formats and copy large files to it. The FAT32 hard disk format cannot handle files larger than 4GB. Reformatting the hard drive erases everything, so you need to copy whatever you want to keep from the drive first.

I was unable to copy Quicktime files larger than 4GB from one Firewire drive to another. When the transfer reaches the 4 GB point, it stops and displays an error message that the operation could not be completed and displays error code -1309.

I have successfully copied files less than 4 GB in size.

I cannot find an explanation for error code -1309.
