Default My hdd (external) is messing up, i need help

i can add many files onto my hdd, its 320 gig, however whenever i try to add a file over 4 gig it says there no space left,

after this message i can go ahead and put on 10 800 meg files on with no problem.

so theres definetly space, but for some reason it doesn;t like it when i try to put a 4gig file on it, which is just stupid and makes it useless to me.

heres the exact error.

Cannot copy (file): There is not enough free disk space

Delet one or more file to free disk space, and then try again

To Free space on his drive by deleting old or unnecessary files, click Disk Cleanup.

i then follow this up by adding another 10 gigs worth of smaller files with no problem. so this is very weird,

i hope to god there a way to fix this error because i really dont have the time to return this.

just click on ti and check you have enough space if you have you could try zipping the file using winrar or winzip and then see if it transfers at the smaller file size then just unzip once it is on.
