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.

Put flash in then go to start go to my files and find the flash and copy to it if you don't know which one is the flash while in my files pull flash out and put back in should disappear and then reappear
when your file starts to download a browse option should open you can select your usb drive or once its downloaded you could copy and paste the file into the usb flash drive or drag and drop it into the usb drive click start all programs accessories open windows explorer navigate to your files right click on the file right copy navigate back to the destination drive right click select paste or hold the mouse cursor on the files drag them to folder then drop them into your flash drive
Open "My Documents".
Hold the CTRL key down, and click the mouse on the first file/folder that you want to copy.
While holding the CTRL key down, click the mouse on the next file/folder that you want to copy.
While holding the CTRL key down, keep clicking to "add" more files/folders to your "selected" objects.
Release the CTRL key.
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on one of the selected files/folders.
Point at "Send To".
Click on the icon for your your IOMEGA device.
The selected files/folders will be copied.
When the 'copy' completes, do _NOT_ delete your original files.
Instead, keep those original files in your 'My Documents' folder,
and keep the copy on the IOMEGA. That way, if your C: disk-drive fails,
or if the IOMEGA fails, then you still have _ONE_ copy of your files.
The usual limit is exactly 2GB, not 1GB.
It's a limitation of the file-system used for the directory of the disk-drive, when formatted according to the 'FAT32' specifications.
So, copy all the files currently on the Verbatim to your disk-drive.
Then, "reformat" the external (not the "internal") disk-drive, using the 'NTFS' file-system. This file-system has a maximum-file-size limitation for one file that is _much_ larger than the capacity of your Verbatim.
Then, copy all the "saved" files back onto the Verbatim.
Finally, copy your "large" files onto the Verbatim.
First connect your flash drive to computer usb port. Then open my computer you find your flash drive as removable storage. Then open it and minimize. Then select files which you want to copy then copy and then again maximize flash drive then paste files there. Let me know if you need more assistance. Thanks.
