Play a big ARB waveform file in the generator N5182A

Hello everybody,

I wrote under Matlab a GPS code that I would like to generate with the Agilent Generator N5182A.
To do that, I did as it is explained in the "Programming Guide" and then when my file is generated (ARB format), I download it into the Internal Memory of the generator thanks to a USB key.

However, I have a few questions because I don't succeed to play my waveform.

First of all, a GPS code is something long (818400 chips and 2000 samples per chips) thus at the end, my final ARB file is 300mb.
Thus, I would like to know if it is possible to play this kind of file from the generator? Because to play it I have to download it on the BBG memory but if the file is too big it doesn't work...

If it is not possible, do you think it is possible to play it directly from the internal memory or from an external hard disk storage (or from a usb key) ?

Thanks a lot for your help and have a nice day!
