SanDisk 32GB USB Can't Copy more than 5gb - Please Help !!!

I  recently bought a new SanDisk 32GB Cruzer Blade USB and for some reason I can’t copy more than 5gb onto it. I have tried to format the usb to the default device format but nothing seems to be working. Please  Help! I payed good money for it and I don’t want it to go to wast. Any ideas or solutions would be appreciated.

Normal default format for removable devices is FAT32.  FAT32 can not hold a file greater than 4GB.  Reformat the drive as exFAT or NTFS, both with hold files larger than 4GB.   But there may be compatibility issues when used in other machines.
