Some files will not copy to USB flash drive

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by NoMoreMrNiceGuy, Mar 1, 2005.

  1. Windows XP Pro, USB2.0

    I'm trying to copy some mp3s to a Sandisk flash drive. Most of the
    files will copy over but a few will not. I get an error message
    something like "The directory of file cannot be created." There is
    plenty of room on the drive and I have had the drive full in the past.

    Any ideas what's going on?

    Names too long, illegal characters being used in the name (!#$%^&...)?
