What format is the drive

In the Microsoft Windows operating system, you can copy and paste 5 GB files as long as you have enough disk drive space. The disk drive to which you're pasting the file must be formatted using the New Technology File System (NTFS), which supports the copying and pasting of very large files.

Purchase a large capacity USB external hard disk drive from a reputable vendor. Make sure that the hard disk drive is at least 100 GB. Connect the external hard disk drive to a spare USB port in your computer. Wait for the Windows operating system to recognize the hard disk drive. Double-click on the "Computer" icon on the Windows Desktop, after which a window will appear listing all of your disk drives. Establish the letter of the new hard disk drive you have just installed. For the purpose of this article, the drive letter is assumed to be "E." Right-click on drive "E," click on "Format," change the file system to "NTFS," then click on the "Start" button. Wait for the process to complete. Click on the 5 GB+ file to select it, then press "Ctrl" + "C" on your keyboard to copy the file to the Windows Clipboard. Click on the "Computer" icon on the Windows Desktop, then double-click on the "E" drive. This will open the root folder of the hard disk drive in the same window. Press "Ctrl" + "V" on your keyboard to paste the 5 GB+ file from the Windows Clipboard to the new hard disk drive. Wait for the process to complete, which will take several minutes.

Are you positive there isn't a flash drive stuck in a USB port somewhere else on the computer? Very peculiar for the computer to be recognizing a completely different device.

Just plug the flash drive in and let your computer recognize it and offer to open the flash drive file up to view. Once it is loaded up then you can simply drag and drop into it. If this is the first time using the flash drive it may need to load some software. When a flash drive is being used a small icon should appear on the lower right.
