R does have the unfortunate habit of trying to load large files into RAM. If you're trying to load the raw sequences or even the full BAM file then you're going to have problems. Process all of the reads outside of R (also, call peaks there). Just load the peaks into R as this file should be much more manageable for you.

BTW, in the future you might get a little better feedback if you stated exactly what's not working well. What are you trying to load and how big is it? How much RAM do you have? You won't get far if you don't give people the information they need to help you.
