I never tried that but I did store 3GB+ files on external FAT32
formatted media with both winXP and linux.
A 2GB limit would rather mean that the app you used does not support
LFS (and therefore is limited to 2GB files).
But the filesystem FAT32 has a 4GB filesysize limit ( 4GB - 1 byte to be exact).
"The maximum possible size for a file on a FAT32 volume is 4 GiB minus
1 byte (2^32-1 bytes)" [1]
