    Yes you are getting that error because the file is larger than 4 GB. As to making it smaller, I don't know; what kind of file is it?

    You have a couple options. The easiest is copy it via Ethernet. You could compress it and try to burn it to a double layer DVD. You could install macfuse and ntfs-3g on your Mac so you can read/write ntfs drives.
