Are you absolutely certain that your drives are NTFS. The symptoms you describe are exactly those experienced with FAT32.

And, as John's posting shows, I pinpointed a likely cause of the problem - something else you seem to have forgotten, too!

Before you decide which way to turn next, perform the following quick test (well, it will take about 20 minutes!) can you input files of greater than 4GB??
If you can, then you have no file-size problem and can concentrate on looking elsewhere.
If you can't then you have proven it's a file-size problem.
I think you will be one step further forward whatever!
