I am trying to download Americas Army 2.7 and it cuts off when it reaches 2Gb and the file size is 2.5Gb. Ive tried it from several different sources and it still doesnt work.

I know this is a dumb question...but have you checked to see if you have enough hard drive space on your computer? Do you have more than 2gb free?

Hi whodey319.
Sounds like you're hitting the 2gb single file size limit with FAT32.

If you are trying to download from an http site, try an ftp mirror instead.
It's a known issue with IE and there is nothing you can do about it on your end.

Hmm...Fat32 does not have 2gb limit. I think it has a 4GB limit. Fat16 did have a 2GB limit. What OS is this? I am assuming XP?
