    Error Number: 82 (0x52)
    Symbolic Name: ERROR_CANNOT_MAKE
    Text description: The directory or file cannot be created.

    Can you manually create the folder(s) in question on that device?

    I am having the same problem (same error message). What do you mean am I
    able to manually create the file? How do I do that?

    I am getting the same error message when trying to copy photos to my SD card.
    This was after it worked fine for two hours while I copied and pasted
    numerous photos onto the SD card. Suddenly I started getting an error message
    every time I tried to paste one into the SD card. After reading your question
    about manually creating a folder/file, I'm not sure exactly what that means,
    but I opened the SD card and clicked in that window to make a "new folder"
    and I got the same error message. Any other ideas of what to do???

    That is indeed the source of your problem. You can't do it, Explorer can't
    do it either. At this point I would back up my data off the SD card and
    format the SD card, then restore the data back to the SD card. Does it then
    function correctly again?

    I have experienced the same error message and found that it was related to
    the receiving media. When I changed flash sticks, the send to went without
    the error message.
