Question about SanDisk Memory Media
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?
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.
