Copying my iTunes HD movie to my 1tb ex hd


Distinguished Member
Hello all.
I hope this is the correct forum to post this?

I have purchased a HD download of a film off of iTunes as an experiment to see if it's straight forward to store mp4 hd films on a external hard drive. I have the movie file on my iTunes movie folder on my mac mini but everytime I grab and drag it over to my ex hdd a window pops up saying the following....The item "iTunes HD Movies" can't be copied because it's too large for the volumes format.
What does this mean? Is it my 1tb ex hd hasn't enough space to copy the film file onto it?
By the way the file iTunes HD movies is the name I gave the file that contains the movie I want to store.

Any help please.
