Could be where the file is split into 3.5gb sections.
If i record one long clip, (wedding ceremony or speeches usually are that long), when i look at the card in windows i see multiple clips split into around 3.5 gb each, however when i look at that same clip in clip browser i see on long clip, which in reality is what it is, i only hit the record button once after all.

Have a look at some smaller clips and the line probably won't be there.

Paul.

Paul is right. The card have a FAT 32 format, which does not allow more than 4 GB filesize. Sony obviously have found a smart work-around for this problem, since I never have had any problems with their solution.
