Verbatim flash drive

I have a Verbatim 1gb flash drive that worked wonderfully for about 50 files that I copied to it from my harddrive, then it wouldn't copy any more.  It started saying "cannot copy (whatever the file name was); the directory or file cannot be created."

Re: Verbatim flash drive

Try copying the files to a subfolder. The FAT file system has a limit of how many files & file name characters you can store in the root folder.

Having the same problem, and I've only used about 512mb of the 2 gigs I've got available.

That's a very bad sign. :-(

Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee,
they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files onto a brand-new disk-drive.

It seems that the disk-drive is "dying".
If it works, at least a bit, copy all the files from it onto your C: drive, or burn the files to DVD-writable disk(s).

I'm Windows XP... I can copy many files to the Verbatim. But when I try to copy a 1GB+ file, the copy craps out. I Googled and found some Microsoft problem when copying 1GB+ files to external drives, but...

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.

Usb drive use

Most thumb drives are used like floppy or rewritable optical discs (excluding ReadyBoost and the bootable versions). They are most often formatted as FAT drives (under Windows). If the drive is good and the USB port is good, plugging the drive into the computer's port should trigger a "new hardware found" message from Windows.

In Windows, open My Computer or Computer (depending on the OS) and you will see it listed under Drives with Removable Storage. You can use the file explorer to navigate through your regular drive and copy files to the thumb drive or the reverse. (I usually open two different windows and drag the files with a right-click then select Copy.) Synch programs can let you keep the thumb drive and hard disc copy at the same version. Alternatively, you can save a file directly from the program that you are usng to edit the material. (File > Save As and chose the destination). You can also open the file from the thumb drive in a similar mode. To avoid lost data, always select the Safely Remove Hardware from the taskbar (or Eject from the File Explorer) before unplugging the drive from the port.

The biggest problem is that the FAT formatting limits the number of files you can put on the disc unless you keep them in folders. (The same number of folders can be in the home directory as files without using folders.)

Bootable thumb drives (as well as those that can run software directly from the USB drive) come with software that lets them do this. Then they act like any optical disc with Autorun and executable programs. Readyboost is dealt with completely by the OS and keeps the drive (or portion of the drive) separate from the area that will store files.

Sometimes these drives do fail. Getting the data off the flash memory takes a professional most of the time.

I hope this helps.

(You can copy all of the files from the thumb drive and reformat it at intervals. Then copy files back if you are concerned about file fragmentation.)

You have to partition your Verbatim Drive to work on a Mac. Go to Macintosh HD / Applications / Utilities / Disk Utility. When in Disk Utility select the 232.9 GB SAMSUNG HM250HI Media to the left.

RE: Files messed up on flash drive

That means the file has been messed up during transport of some time when it was not being used if you smart enough to have a back up file or two copies of that file just copy and paste or save twice again.
