SOURCE: Cruzer micro 2GB - "Directory or file cannot be created"

In all likelihood, your SD card is formatted FAT and you are hitting the limit on number of objects in the root directory. Check the format type and if it is FAT, I would recommend reformatting as FAT 32 which has more lenient restrictions.

ALTERNATIVE: If you really do not want to reformat the card, you might try to remove a few pics to free up space in teh directory and then create a subfolder to store picture in. Object in this subfolder should not be counted at the root.

My scandisk cruzer 4gb does not work with my win7 the light does not even come on

Try the flash drive in another computer, and if the problem is still there the product may be corrupted.

If the product is still in it's warranty period, you should go to the manufacturer's service center, and they will replace it free of cost.
If the warranty period is over, just buy a new one.
Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

Scandisk light is on but PC doesn't recognise USB flash drive

right click my computer and go to manage. Then select disk management and see if it in there. If it and doesn't have a drive letter by it. Select mount it and assign it a letter and it should work. If not then the flash drive is probably bad.

When adding files to scandisk 4gb u3 usb it says that the disk drive is already full but the drive doesnt have any files on it.

The simplest method to solve a problem such as this is to reformat the drive. Open "My Computer" and "right-click" on the drive that is your USB drive and there should be an option in the context menu to "Format". Click on that, choose your formatting options and run it.

I have a 4gb cruzer flash drive and its not working

Okay. Try putting it in on the back of your computer and tell me if it lights up at all, even if it flashes once.
