2GB drive won't hold a 4GB iso, no matter what.

NTFS is a drive format that is proprietary to Microsoft. It's officially not available to MacOS, iOS, Android or Linux, although there may be hacks in the platforms that get around that limitation.

exFAT is the drive format to use if you want file sizes > 4GB and officially-supported cross-platform compatibility.

As long as you don't use any SAT. FAT, it should be fine.

IIRC Mac can read NTFS, just can't write to it.

Correct, although I've had issues even reading them correctly. Maybe it doesn't handle permissions properly. Copying the data through a FAT32 volume first got around it. Writing back to NTFS drives can be done with 3rd party tools.
