How’s the SD card formatted?
FAT32 by looks, which i would understand 4gb+ files not working
If someone can advise SSH commands to format im happy to give that a try

Found out how to Format as EXT4, goes at about 50MB/s for 20 seconds then sits at 10MB/s but copies all files
At a guess,10MB/s may be the actual write speed of the card. Prior to the speed change it’s writing at that speed but also caching a lot more data in RAM to be written later; when it runs out of memory for caching, it has to slow down to the speed the card supports.
