Now I purchased a new enclosure (Cutie DX, Korean brand...arnd $60) and everything is okay.
    You mean I can't copy more than 2GB at a time? But I tried copying 1GB of NEFs, it stop near halfway, thereabouts 500MB?

    nope, you should be able to and 2gb should not be an issue. my concern is more on the quality of the usb enclosure which might be the problem since HD is the least thing i would suspect.

    Its a FAT32 thing. Mentioned in video editing s/w manual.

    If I do multiple copies from the HDD to the portable, it's fine too, but I haven't tried large files

    Sigh... what's the problem...
