Copying to an externall HDD using USB 1.1

I have 200GB Western Digital external drive, I am trying to copy a file that is 50GB in size from Windows 2000 Server using the USB port 1.1, and I get this error:
Cannot copy "filename": there is not enough disk space.
Delete one or more files to free disk space, and then try again.

Although I have 200GB free
Any thoughts?

Thank you.

The hard drive is most likely too large, and therfore it reports 0 bytes free. Can you partition the drive into two volumes, so that neither is larger than 100GB? If so that should fix the issue.

Actually I found out that the partition was FAT32, I reformated the drive to NTFS, and now works good.

Cool, the 200gb partition was 2 big for Fat32... good catch. ;)
