Limited length of MP3 conversion

Hi, My name is Mike. I successfully converted over thirty 45 minute cassette tapes on Windows 11 over a period of two weeks. But for the past week, the conversion process stops at 16:30 seconds, and the following pop-up appears - "File size limit (4 GB) reached for file:....Recording has been terminated."  I made not changes in the settings; I always applied the same - MP3,441.KHz,VBS1. The successfully converted MP3's are ca. 2.8 gigs and have a Bit rate of 8467. The 16 minute MP3's, on the other hand, are ca. 3.8 gigs and have a Bit Rate of 33,868. I assume this is the cause of the problem. I don't see any way to adjust the Bit Rate. I twice uninstalled and reloaded the app, but the problem persists. Do you have idea how to resolve this?
Thank you for your answer.
Kind regards,

Paul Sanders (AlpineSoft)
