    You posted it in the wrong forum. Please try to get it in the right forum for a faster response, or a response at all.

    If the file is 4.6 gigs, its on a dvd and not a cd, but regardless, what file system is that hd formatted in? If its FAT32, right there is your problem, FAT32 can't handle files over 4 gigs in size. You will need to convert the FS to NTFS if you are on a Windows machine.
