AIFF format maximum audio data size is 2GB. It's a limitation of the AIFF file format, not a limitation in EZ CD Audio Converter.

You need either to switch to a format that supports large file size (WAV, FLAC, M4A/Apple Lossless) or adjust the Sample Rate and Bit Depth to reduce the audio data size.

Are you converting from DSD ? You may want to reduce the sample rate to 192 kHz or 176.4 kHz. The DSD decoder provides super high resolution audio (384kHz / 352.8kHz) by default.
