Googling for "write: file too large" directly points you to the cause of
the problem.

Since you didn't provide any details (what command you used, what file
system, what file size was reached when the error occurred) I can only
assume you are using a fat file system.

The only solution is to use another file system without such limits, or
to create smaller files.
