    Anyone know why it says file too large when it appears to have ample space?

    Can't tell for certain but I suspect that you are trying to copy the file from your computer hard drive to an sd card.

    The HD is formatted NTFS which can support huge files and the sd card is formatted FAT32 which I believe has a file size limit of 2GB or 4GB.

    You cant transfer it because your storage is formatted as FAT or FAT32, which has a single max file size of 4GB.
