[gdal-dev] File too large?

I have a file in envi format
(PIR_MVC_EUROM_0112_2000.bsq and PIR_MVC_EUROM_0112_2000.hdr)

 From gdalinfo I get:

 > gdalinfo PIR_MVC_EUROM_0112_2000.bsq
ERROR 4: `PIR_MVC_EUROM_0112_2000.bsq' not recognised as a supported 
file format

I've also tried renaming PIR_MVC_EUROM_0112_2000.bsq
to PIR_MVC_EUROM_0112_2000

The size of the file is 6005188800 bytes, could this be the problem?
I do not have this problem with other, smaller files.
(I'm using ubuntu 8.04 and the file is on a NTFS partition)
