I am using Premiere Elements 14.0.  I created a movie (MPG) and saved it to my hard drive.  It is 11GB in size and runs well.  I copied it and tried to paste it on a 32GB flash drive (USB3.0) and received the error message that the file is too large for the destination file system.  I do not understand how/why this is happening.  I want the movie on the flash drive so it can run on my electronic picture frame.  Any help would be appreciated.  I have no problems pasting it on my 800 GB external drive (550 GB free).  The flash drive checks out OK and allows me to paste pictures on it but I only tried a 2GB paste. 

Thanks in advance for assistance.

Individual files on a FAT32 drive can’t be over 4 GB in size—that’s the maximum.  You can reformat the "flash drive" to hold larger files.

That was it!!!  Thanks for helping out a dummy.  I formatted the drive to NTFS, loaded the file, and watched it on my TV.  Apparently my electronic picture frame does not support this video format.  Thanks again. RW
