this problem started yesterday. i can't copy any of the files to my pen drive. it always says ' cannot copyxyz.abc ', thought i've transferred the file many times previously. same for movies - it copies for a short time then says can't copy and breaks off. the movie files then becomes corrupted in the destination drive. i've tried reinstalling usb drivers but the problem persists. i have winxp sp1 and p4 2.5 ghz

Just an opinion....Flash drives don't last forever.

Have you tried cleaning the contacts inside of it?

on using a deifferent flash drive, the error message just changed to " sorry: file path is too deep" although the transferred files is names " heirich isolation" being copied to a folder named "pdf" in the destination drive. i can't see how the path is too deep. i already copied the file from that locatio 2-3 times in the past week without any problems.
