How large are the files that you're trying to transfer? FAT-32 formatted drives are limited to a file size of around 4 GB. That limitation does not apply for drives formatted to HFS+ or NTFS.
If the file sizes are OK and the drive is quitting anyway, the problem may be hardware related. Run Disk Utility from Applications, Utilities, and do a verify and repair of the drive.
