Hi, I have copied music no problem to my memory usb stick, now when i try to add to it, it says... error copying file or folder

cannot copy.......(song tittle)...
the directory or file cannot be created.

there is def spare space on the mem stick ?

This sounds to me like an error on the pen's part, either through a dodgy format, or possibly duplicate file name. Possibly a power issue (but I have just blamed somebody else's USB problem on a power issue, so I'm probably just a power fetishist!)

Try putting the contents of the memory stick into a folder, then try and move the next track across.

Try reformatting the pen... use FAT32 ideally.

Try using a powered hub. Or a different USB port.... or not using one of the thin extension cables that is often supplied.....

I feel stupid. i think it was just duplicate names ! Any way i formatted it to fat 32. I use this stick in my car usb player, is fat 32 best in there also ?
