Re: Unable to copy any files to flash drive

Hello Coco999,

Every Flash Drive has a teeny-tiny switch for write-protection. Could it be that the switch is in the wrong position? It may be hard to find... can you please tell me the brand name and model of the flash drive? I may be able to help you find it.

Re: Unable to copy any files to flash drive

Attempt to unlock the drive. If there is no content of importance on the drive, you may just need to reformat it.

What format is the drive

In the Microsoft Windows operating system, you can copy and paste 5 GB files as long as you have enough disk drive space. The disk drive to which you're pasting the file must be formatted using the New Technology File System (NTFS), which supports the copying and pasting of very large files.

Purchase a large capacity USB external hard disk drive from a reputable vendor. Make sure that the hard disk drive is at least 100 GB. Connect the external hard disk drive to a spare USB port in your computer. Wait for the Windows operating system to recognize the hard disk drive. Double-click on the "Computer" icon on the Windows Desktop, after which a window will appear listing all of your disk drives. Establish the letter of the new hard disk drive you have just installed. For the purpose of this article, the drive letter is assumed to be "E." Right-click on drive "E," click on "Format," change the file system to "NTFS," then click on the "Start" button. Wait for the process to complete. Click on the 5 GB+ file to select it, then press "Ctrl" + "C" on your keyboard to copy the file to the Windows Clipboard. Click on the "Computer" icon on the Windows Desktop, then double-click on the "E" drive. This will open the root folder of the hard disk drive in the same window. Press "Ctrl" + "V" on your keyboard to paste the 5 GB+ file from the Windows Clipboard to the new hard disk drive. Wait for the process to complete, which will take several minutes.
File transfer software When e-mailing or archiving huge files, it sometimes helps to cut them into smaller pieces. Fast File Saw & Joiner does exactly that, and puts the pieces back together, too.

I have an older HP Pavilion PC with Windows ME. I recently copied 164 Adobe Acrobat files from my ?C? Hard Drive to a 2 GB SanDisk USB 2.0 Flash Drive without any problems. Now I cannot copy any more files...

Sounds like the F.A.T. (File Allocation Table) is bad on the drive. Try to format it and then copy everything back to it once again.

Can not copy outlook messages

It looks like your external hard disk in FAT32 system and outlook messages file .PST is more then 4GB.

To know the file system of the Hard Disk right click on the drive select properties.

Check your file system first. FAT32 will not support more than file size of 4GB.


There are 2 options to copy.

1. Split the .PST in to 2 or more outlook data file


2. Convert the FAT32 System to NTFS.

To convert from FAT32 to NTFS. go to following link

10 to 20 percent music files-(message)"unable to copy file or directory"

go to your folder with the files you want to share, open the folder select all of the music files copy them. Open up your brothers flash drive then paste them onto it.

If you have made a shortcut to these files on your desktop then copying them it maybe trying to copy the shortcuts and it won't work.

Another thing to check is that the music files are in the right format for the flash drive.
