I would make sure that all filenames do not exceed 116 characters in length, and they contain only standard characters (A-Z and 0-9, not symbols like !@#$%^*))/|).

    Try running a check disk.

    Open up command prompt. (Start --> Run... --> then type "cmd" (without the quotes)
    Then type the following: "CHKDSK Z: /X /F" (without the quotes, replace "Z" with the drive letter of your SD card.

I transferred a file onto a SanDisk and it shows up on the disk on that computer but when I insert the disk into the computer I want to copy the file to it says This folder is empty. I don't get i


What operating system is on the computer you copied the file from, the computer it's going to? Did you encrypt the flash drive? Example: if you have the drive formatted for HF+ on a Apple you won't be able to see it on a Windows box without a little help. If this is the case, plug the drive in the Windows computer format it as NTFS. Plug it back into the Apple, Apple can see NTFS, copy the file to flash drive, plug into win comp and it will see it.

I have an 8GB micro sd card for my blackberry storm when i put it in. It says media card has inserted contains errors. to correct the errors use a disk error-checking utility on a computer. what do i need...


Hi,

The chances on any micro sd card showing errors can be either the files stored in it are corrupted or the card is simply bad already. You may try to identify the problem by performing the following steps.

1· Access micro sd card through a card reader. May it be built-in in a computer or an accessory that needs to be plugged-in to a computer.
2· Wait for a few seconds for the computer to read the micro sd card.
a· If it asked you to "open the folder to view files", do so then copy all contents in a new folder on your desktop. This is to make a backup copy of your files. Then, format the micro sd card with FAT32 format. Copy all files back to your micro sd card.
b· If it asked you to format the micro sd card, most likely all files are corrupted. Try to format the card for re-use. If not successful, your micro sd card is bad already and needs replacement.

I hope this works for you. Good Luck!

I have a .pst file that is 5 GB which I am trying to copy to a sandisk flash drive cruzer 8 GB. I keep on getting an error message stating the the file is to big for the destination file system. What...


Two possibilities:

1. you already have more than 3GB of files on the SANDISK.
So, delete some files, or "burn" them to a CD/DVD disk,
so that you have at least 5 GB of "free" space available.

2. the "file-system" (the way that the "table-of-contents" is laid-out on the SANDISK) limits the size of a single file to 2GB.
The "file-system" on your 'C:' drive does *NOT* have that identical limitation (it does have a "maximum-file-size", but it is MUCH larger).

Open Outlook, and "compress" all the folders.
Perhaps, the PST file will shrink to less than 4.7 GB.
If it does, then you can "burn" that file onto one DVD-writable disk.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TRANSFER FOTOS AND VIDEO TO MY CRUZER MICRO 2GB


There are several ways to do it. Try this.

Go to my Computer and select the stick drive by double clicking the icon (removable drive, e? f? g?, depending what other drives you have on your machine) This should open a window for that drive showing its contents.

Now go to the folder that contains the files you want to back up. Right click the file you want to back up and choose Copy. Go back to the window for the stick drive and left click in the window, then right click and choose paste.

Your file should now be copied to the memory stick.

If you want to save several files click on the first one, hold down the Shift key and click on the last one in the folder and they will all be selected - then right click and select Copy. Then do as abaove to save to the memory stick.

How do i transfer files to a SanDisk Cruzer flash drive


Hello,
It is simple. You insert it into a usb 2.0 port on your computer. Windows will recognize it and it will show in the My computer window. You click on the icon for the drive and you can explore what is in it.
1.
If you have files (documents, pictures, etc.) you select them, right click mouse button to copy them ( CTRL C) then you open the Cruzer and you right click inside the drive window ( CTRL V) and click Paste.
.2. You can open 2 windows side by side, one for the folder that contains the file to be transferred, the other for the Cruzer. You will have to reduce the sizes of the windows. Then You click on the file to be transferred and maintain the click. After that you drag the mouse cursor and drop it in the Cruzer window. (That is called Drag and Drop)

Hope it helps.
