Video Files limited to 3.98 GB?

So im recording with FRAPS for my youtube, and windows started limiting file sizes to 3.98 GB in my Gameplay folder. So at 720p, the games get split into about 6 or 7 pieces. Can anybody help me here? i have FRAPS 3.4 Fully Registered.

Is your drive formatted as FAT32?
Is there a setting in Fraps for max file size?

Thanks for the reply. My drive is formatted as NTFS. There isnt a limit on FRAPS either. I have no problem with video that i download or that i put on. Just recording. Anyway im rendering my first gameplay in Premire Elements right now, just taking the pieces and cutting them together. at least they all end/start exactly on cue, so i dont have to do too much to them. Just pop em together and wait. and wait. and wait some more. for them to export.

My first gameplay is Crysis 2, and i am really liking the 560ti. I get 40 FPS with DX11 and High Res Textures ON while recording. On Very high, DX11 and High Res on, not recording, i get 70-80 constantly dipping into the 55 range while theres a lot of smoke and/or explosions.

Fraps works like this way I guess. I also recorded some gameplay a few months ago and it saved 3.98G files...but I could merged them together with VirtualDub (which I used to convert the videos) without any additional time delay.

Playing .mod Video Files
I've spent some time trying to find out why .mod files play perfectly well on my Vaio laptop but not on my Samsung netbook, even though they both run Windows 7 and Windows Media Player 12 with apparently identical sets of codecs. I soon found this was a common problem for people with certain Canon,...
