Have been using an external HD to move movies to watch in boxee on my ATV. Problem is some of the movies now exceed 4gs. The external HD has to be fat32 to work with atv/boxee. any suggestions on how to get these files on the hard drive. Gives me error code zero.

Are you using ATV Flash for the external? I mean, why can't you just format it Journaled HFS+?

the reason you cannot is boxee only reads data on fat 32 drives and devices kinda like the ps3 has to have the external hard drive formatted in fat 32 or it won't function.
