Intregal / 2gb sd card

Specs: Windows XP
I have put 150 photos on the card but when I try to transfer more I get an error message; 'Cannot copy file____ Directory or file cannot be created'. This card should hold 900+ photos, Property window says there is loads of space so what's happening?

What format type are you using on the card?

My guess is that you are writing all the files to the root directory in an older FAT file system. There is a limit of 512 entries in the root directory which will be further reduced by using long file names.

The exact number of 150 is strange though and kind of throws a wrench in my thoughts.

Try removing some and then making some folders. Cut and paste existing files to the folders and see if that solves your problem.

Thank you for replying, I removed all the photos re-formatted the card to FAT32 that appears to have done the trick, it now holds 300+.
