Probably tied to old limitations of maximum file size on FAT32 partitions.

No such 4GB file size limit exists on NTFS partitions, which is why you should be using only NTFS partitions for "recordings" and other video editing use where huge file sizes are involved.

Would your hard drive happen to be formatted FAT32??? If so, you can use Partition Wizard to convert the partition from FAT32 to NTFS and be done with this story.
