cp - File Size limits ???

I have a movie.iso file (3.1Gb) in size that I am trying to copy to a 4
Gb flash drive like this:
cp ./movie.iso /media/NEW\ VOLUME/

About 2/3 of the way through, it dies with this message:
File size limit exceeded (core dumped)

Is there a way to overcome a files size limitation in cp?
Is there some other way to accomplish this?
