Empty drive gets full error

Specs: Windows XP

So I have a brand new 8gb flash drive and when I try to copy a 4gb file to it is says disk full. When I tried copying a 7gb file it said the same. I have copied large files on it before but now I can't. I have ran the disk check/repair and formated it twice using fat32 and it still doesn't work.

"formated it twice using fat32"

"The maximum possible size for a file on a FAT32 volume is 4 GB minus 1 byte (232−1 bytes). Video applications, large databases, and some other software easily exceed this limit. Larger files require another formatting type such as NTFS."
