Value too large for defined data type... help

I am trying to convert a mdf file to iso with mdf2iso and this message pops up "Value too large for defined data type". The file is about 4.6 GB. Any other information, please ask. What should i do?

iso9660 filesystems (i.e. .iso images), provided they properly treat variables as unsigned (which in most newer operating systems they should) only support files up to 2^32 bits (4GB) in size. A 4.6GB file is too large and will not be supported.
