maybe the reason is the partition is too big
for FAT16 or vfat yes. You need to format it as FAT32 or NTFS.
PS: the choice of vfat is that IMO vfat is more cross-platform
not really. VFAT allows long filenames - otherwise it is not better than FAT16.
That means it allows only partitions up to 2GB.

FWIW, vfat is not a filesystem layout type, so it has no size limitation per se. It is only a way to use long filenames with any FAT type, FAT12, FAT16 or FAT32. So vfat on FAT32 has the limits of FAT32.
