    That is because the fat 32 system only allows recording up to 4Gb of info at a time.

    It is the file system that the memory card is formatted in. Specifically, is the way information is stored on the card. And with fat32, the max file size is 4GB.

    You can't change it as the P3's software is designed to record in FAT. If it did not use FAT you'd not be able to store your files on a 5.25" floppy disk. Then where would you be. That's right.... complaining that you can't use all of your floppy disks.
