there may be few causes for the problem it is formatted with fat32. fat32 is not capable of having single files of size more than 4 G. format it with ext3 or ntfs instead the storage area has physical damage near the 4 G location. use drive scanning software to check for bad blocks if the problem exists only on your computer than its the computer and not the drive

(Without actually checking) you should be able to repartition it like any other logical drive. Google the words "partition USB drive" and see what you find. L
