I bought a pendrive from kingston 16 GB...Whenever I copy a single file larger than 4 GB its not copying into my pen drive...So can anyone explain why its not copying?...One of my friends told that, a single file of size 4 GB cannot be copied into any pendrive..Is that true?

Had the same issue. Changed the file system from FAT to NTFS and it worked fine.
To convert FAT to NTFS, right click the drive name of pendrive -> select Format -> File system type select NTFS.
If NTFS is not available (only FAT is available), then Right click at pen drive -> Click Properties -> Select Hardware tab & click properties -> Goto Policies Tab -> Select Optimise for Performance. Now you should have NTFS in Format menu.
Hope this helps
thanks sir

Thanks sir Thanks sir Thanks sir Thanks sir
I found a solution myself...My pendrive was in FAT 32 FILE SYSTEM, thats why I cannot copy a single ISO file of size 6GB...Later I changed my pendrive's file system to NTFS...After the conversion of file system to NTFS the single ISO file of size 6GB is easily copied in to my pendrive & even very quickly...Thanx to my BRAIN for thinking this much...hehehe :)
