My wife wanted me to download some old archived movies from the Net, specifically Mary Poppins from the 1960s. The mp4 movie is about 4.2 GB but cannot be loaded on an empty 32 GB pen drive because of "lack of space." I believe the issue has to do with FAT32/NTFS/exFAT and other tech stuff which goes right over my head.  If I format the pen drive to NTFS or exFAT, the TV (Panasonic) doesn't play it.  Any tips? Thanks in advance.

Maximum size on a FAT32 drive is 4 GB so you will need to split the video into two smaller sections.

for options.
