Are you perhaps trying to copy to a FAT32 drive? Is the file you are
copying larger than 4GB? If so, be aware that FAT32 has a 4GB file
size limit, and the confusing error message you get when you try to
create a larger file is as you describe.

You would have exactly the same problem there. It's a FAT32 issue, not
a Vista issue.
But if you wanted to, you could back up all your data and install XP
cleanly. You can not do this with programs, which would have to be
reinstalled from the original media.
