Do you have enough storage space on your HDD for the video to be transferred?

Where are you transferring the file to? The desktop?

Are you using the copy/paste method? Have you tried dragging and dropping the file? Next I would check the USB drive for corruption.

...or test on another computer. If it works on another computer, then you have a computer issue. If it also doesn't work on another computer, the USB drive is corrupted/faulty.

Perhaps we should say it a different way.

If you use this USB stick on a secondary PC and then try to transfer the file does the same thing happen where it freezes during transfer?

Check any protection on data. If there is no protection, then data corruption or incomplete download sometimes causes such issues.

There are many possibilities. This might be related to the file format issues.

this thread was started back in 2016, was there no solution ??

There are limitations to file sizes and formats and i am wondering whether the original file might be larger than allowed if to be copied to a FAT32 formatted hard drive. I believe that the file size limit on FAT32 was 4096 MB but to be sure it would be wise to check the file formatting on both the USB & HDD to see what the limitations are

This might help if I am correct about the partition formats being different
