This question already has an answer here:
I am digitizing my video collection and want to put it on an external hard drive. It is a 1TB Western Digital HD. The files are all over 5GB as I am ripping the files with Handbrake and at a very high quality. I use the copy/paste method of transferring them to the HD and when it hits a certain size, it errors and stops the transfer telling me that the file is too big. There is plenty of space on the HD.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
I am running Ubuntu 12.04 on a Dell Latitude E6400 32bit.
