    I own a modded Wii (4 year old console) with games stored on hard drives. Whenever I've gotten the above error message in the past, it has been because the hard drive was plugged into the wrong USB port.
    However, I'm still getting this message, even with the USB plugged into either port. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can fix this? Is it possible that the USB port is busted? Many thanks.

    This is a bit unusual. Basically exFAT does not have the limitation of FAT32 (which means that you should've been able to write a file larger than 4GB), so are you sure that the flash drive was not formatted with the FAT32 system before?
    Basically you could try reformatting it with exFAT by using another computer, to see if the same thing happens again. Other than that you could try deleting its partition by using Disk Management and then when you try to format it create a partition with less thena 32GB so that you have the FAT32 option available. Give this a try and if it work download a 3rd party partitioning tool in order to be able to create one large partition with the FAT32 File System, since with Disk Management you can create the limited size of 32GB.

    Hope that helps.
