loading pictures on a SD card

  mathias 21:28 06 Nov 2008

Copying pictures from my PC onto a Sandisk 2Gb SD card with a Belkin reader/writer, I find I am unable to store any more than approx. 600MB of pictures before a dialogue box appears and says "The directory or file cannot be created. I have also tried with different SD cards with the same result.I would very much appreciate it if anyone help me with this problem.

Check that the card is Fat32 formatted.

Wondering if they have somehow been decompressed on saving to SD card

A quick Google shows that this is not an uncommon problem. The root directory has a size limit.

Try this: delete one file from the existing directory on the card, then create a new folder. Try again copying to the new folder and see if that helps. You may even need a additional folders to accommodate all your pics.

I assume the SD card is Fat32 formatted.

This problem was solved by deleting one file and then creating another folder copying pictures into the new folder.
Thanks very much anchor for your help, much appreciated. mathias
