Can I bring my episode in on a thumb drive?

Yes, if it fits on a thumb drive.  Keep in mind that most thumb drives and many portable hard drives are formatted as “FAT 32” file system.  FAT stands for ‘file allocation table.’  FAT 32 formatted drives have a 2GB file size limit.   While we’ve never had success with larger files on devices formatted this way, some web sources say the file size limit is 4GB.  There are other ways to format the drive, NTFS being one, that allow for much larger files.
