Question about SanDisk Memory Media

1 Answer

Cannot copy file error

I have a mp3 player that allows you to add a "memory card" to it. Yesterday I replaced the 156mb card with a Sandisk 2gb card. It allowed me to copy files to it and then with 1.4gb remaining will not allow any more files to be added. When copying files to it from my pc I repeatedly get an error saying it cannot copy "name of file"..the directory or file cannot be created. No other information is given with the error. I tried adding using different methods, media player, winamp and click and drag all with the same result. The pc is recognising the device and I can play songs from it but it will not permit any additional files to be added or folders to be created. I even took the files off and reformatted it. The files that I had taken off copied back but it would not allow any additional files to be added. Can you help me please?

    I like to recommend to download "Long Path Tool" useful in situations where you see these error messages: Cannot read from source file or disk, there has been a sharing violation, cannot delete file or folder, the file name you specified is not valid or too long, the source or destination file may be in use and many other file managing errors.

It sounds like your memory card is formatted with a FAT16 filesystem. FAT16 has a limitation where you can only put 255 files in the root directory, no matter how much available space you actually have. Try placing your files in a folder on the card rather than into the root directory.

When the memory circuit starts to fail it goes into lock mode: it only allows you to copy the files already in, no writing since they will be corrupted anyway and in the process damage the ones already in.
That is an age related defect - the memory chip inside your player has a limited number or write operations available and the chip has reached this number : basically the memory chip is dying of old age.
There is nothing you can do about that, time for a new player.

How do i add memory to my player. now it has 2 gb and i want to replace it with 16gb


You can't augment the internal memory, short of replacing the entire motherboard. And if you're going to take the innards out of another Sansa, why don't you just use that other Sansa instead?

You can add memory in 2GB chunks by using microSD cards. Photos and videos must be in the 2GB internal memory, but any music you put into a MUSIC folder on the card will appear and play on the Sansa. By putting different albums (or sets of albums) on different cards, you can easily switch between them.

Be sure you use microSD cards, not microSDHC cards.

Add additional external memory to sandisk sansa e 250 mp3 player


You can insert microSD cards up to 2GB each. The Sansa will hold only one card at a time, but you can different stuff on multiple cards and swap them.

You may have reached the maximum number of files allowed in the root directory of the file system. If you already have a folder on the card, try moving some of the MP3 files into that folder. If you can copy 1 new MP3 file onto the card, that is your problem. Hopefully your MP3 player supports folders!

2gb Sansa Fuze won't recognize 2gb Micro SD


place the blank card into the SanDisk player
go to SETTINGS press "enter"
go to SYSTEM SETTINGS press "enter
go to FORMAT press "enter"
it will ask "are you sure you want to format this device"?
select YES

dowload songs to REMOVABLE DISK drive F, at least that is what my PC assigned it to. You will overload your MP3 PLAYER if you continue to download to the Sanza Drive.

Hope this helps.

How do i use the sandisk memory card


Hi Marelda,

You will first need to convert the audio CD format to mp3 files before you can copy them to your sandisk memory card and then use it in your phone. This is also called ripping and the software for this should have come with your phone, maybe on a software CD.

Hope this helps.

I added a micro2 gb sandisk cardto my sansa e250r but it will not allow me the extra 2gb. please advise. thanks


The player can read the card, but it is not going to add more memory space to the player. The function of the card reader is to enable your player to play songs that you otherwise couldn't play because the hard drive is full.

Error copying file or folder


You can always reformat it. If you plug the mp3 player into your computer and right click on the icon in the MY COMPUTER window, and click on FORMAT. It should come to a new window and click on start format. Your fixer, Wild2DMaxx
