Question about Electronics - Others
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??
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!

Maybe you should try using Long Path Tool program. Because it eliminates long path file, which can't be copy, rename or delete.

If your computer is part of a windows active directory and you bring it home than its a group policy which is enforced that does not allow you to copy data on a USB drive.
Reming read only attributes will not help ask your system admin to create an exception for this laptop when you undock.
