I have pictures on a flashdrive that someone gave me. Now I want to add more pictures to it. I'm trying to copy and paste files from Windows Explorer (I have Windows XP), and it won't let me. It says the directory or file cannot be created.
Not sure if I have to some use sort of recorder like Sonic Record, but should be able to just copy files??
I have been trying to copy files unto my pendrive but it repeatedly gave the message that it cannot be copied to the destination

Re: Can't Copy Files onto USB Drive
I think you have to copy the pictures to your flashdrive and not copy and paste. this is how to do it: highlight the pictures you want to copy to your flashdrive and check on the left side of windows explorer, you will see some commands available like (delete, copy , move etc) select the copy command and a small windows will appear for you to choose the location to copy, select the flashdrive and then click on copy. this will copy the selected pictures with ease.

Hi, if you want to download to the flashdrive, or external memory device you are able to "Browse" the location you would like to usually before downloading, like something from the internet. If you are trying to save pictures from your computer onto your USB flashdrive you can right click your picture, select copy then goto your start menu and select & open your USB drive, then right click and paste into the window or a folder that you have created. To create a folder on your USB, just right click into a blank space in your USB window when opened, and select NEW, then Folder =) Hope that helped
Just plug the Flashdrive into the USB port of any Computer and the Operating system ie: Windows should just pick it up with Auto play after a few seconds. Open the FLashdrive under My Computer?Computer(depends on the version on windows you are using) Open the Mass Storage device or the drive that shows the Flashdrives details and then just copy your pictures from the folder which you saved them and then Paste them into the Flash drive.
If you want a more detailed description, just let me know what Windows or Operating sytem is on your Computer or the device you want to download from and also the make and model of the Flashdrive.
A flashdrive shows up in Windows as a new drive letter un Windows Explorer. If you right click on My Computer (XP), Computer (Windows 7) you can select explore or open. The dialog box that opens is split in half. the left side shows the "drives" and corresponding letters. Typically, you will have a Local C:\ for your Primary hard drive, CD Drive D:\ for a CD/DVD and the flash drive will show as Removable Drive E:. To copy work to the new flash drive, you can select save as from your program and select the drive letter that you saw the removable drive named in Windows explorer.
You can also, from the folder named My Documents, copy the file by right clicking on it, then selecting the flash drive letter and pasting into the empty window associated with it on the right side of the divided Windows Explorer screen.
just attach the flash drive to the usb port. when u open my computer, there will be other drives like f: or G:. that is your flash drive. just copy the pics u want n paste it to d flashdrive.hope this works
You should have no isssue moving or copying files from a flash drive to your hard drive, unless there is some very unusual type of security placed on them. It sounds like you should make sure you have the proper windows open to drag and drop in Explorer or My Computer windows. I personally find it easier to drag and drop using My Computer. Open My Computer, and navigate to the folder where you want to place the pictures. (There is a quick link to My Documents on the left sidebar.) Once there, leave that window open. Then open a new My Computer window, and navigate to the flash drive, where the files should be listed or displayed. Select the file(s) you want to move, and drag them over to the first window, which is still open to your desired destination. This should solve it - thanks for rating FixYa!
just try this one. try to insert your flashdrive to a usb port where it is compatible then a message will appear saying open folders to view files then you can now copy and paste a pictures or songs on the pc or on ur flashdrve.
