    I am using a brand new Sony Microvault 1GB memory stick USB with windows
    vista. I am unable to save any file on it either using save, Save as or just
    dragging it over, except .jpg. So word Escel etc. I cannot save. I get Error
    0x80070052

    Is there a simple solution I can't see?

    Thanks

    I have not tried USB memory stick in Vista yet. But, in XP, I used to select
    what I wanted to save, right-click on it, go down the menu to "send to", then
    select the drive letter of your memory stick on the sub menu, and left-click

    I have the SAME problem. I am using Patriot SD memory cards and had n
    problems with two of the four cards. Two of them say "The file director
    or file cannot be created" Error 0x80070052. I had the card half ful
    of pics when the message pops up. I placed a call to tech. support bu
    would love to know why this is happening

    Bootsja, here is how i fixed my issue. Formated my memory card.(Right
    click on drive and click on format option). Created new folders. (Right
    click on desktop,click on new. Create folder). Name folder whatever you
    want. I named mine Folder 1, Folder 2, ETC. Drag your songs,pictures
    into a folder. Don't put too much in there. Then drag folder to your
    memory stick. Keep doing this. I put 13 folders onto my card(Drive I)
    and filled the card up with no problems. Hope this works for you. If
    not, I will give you a link that gives other suggestions.

    I am having the same problem trying to save pictures to a USB flash stick. I
    have tried reformating the card, but I get the same error that occurs when I
    transfer files. I have tried copying by copy-paste method, as well as
    right-click-send to 'J' drive method.

    I understand your suggestion of making multiple folders, the only problem
    the reason I am transfering photos to the flash card is to I can use it with
    a digital picture frame. The digital picture frame does not recognize
    folders so pictures cannot be placed in them.

    Any other suggestions?

    You need to put all your files in a sub-folder before you transfer them
    to the USB stick. I kept getting the error when I tried to transfer
    images from a folder in my desktop. Apparently, the folder of your data
    needs to be a sub-folder of the original folder. (A folder in a folder,
    the sub-folder is the one with the data in it.)
    So, in other words, open the folder with the files you want transfered
    and make a 'New' folder in it. Then copy all your stuff into the new
    (sub) folder. After that go into Windows Explorer and Move the original
    folder to your USB stick.
    I don't know *why* you need to do this, probably some kind of computer
    glitch-thing-pain-in-the-butt.
    I hoped that helped someone!

    I tried what Callesto28 said and it works. Thank you!

    My digital picture frame objected when I inseerted the card. It aske
    "File or Photos?" I manipulated the highlight to Photos and it someho
    find the subfolder and is now happily showing the pictures. Differen
    digital picture frames will undoubtedly have different methods o
    operation -- you'll just have to play with it...

    I was previously unable to get past 1.5GB on a 2.0GB memory stic
    (cruzer sandisk) using VISTA o/s. I was trying to load a gazillio
    pictures on the stick for use with a video picture frame.

    Then, on a whim, I tried reformatting the stick in NTFS rather than th
    FAT it came with. Bingo! Problem solved and the 2GB are now full
    accessible!

    No need for multiple sub-directories, etc. Hope that's helpful.

    If your memory stick is formatted using FAT (Sometimes also called
    FAT16) there are several limitations you might want to know about:

    - Partition (drive letter) is limited to 2 GB in total size.
    - Root directory is limited to 512 entries (an entry is a file or a
    directory), although subfolders can contain more than 512 entries.
    - Max number of files on the entire drive is 65,517.FAT32 removes most of the above limitations, so if you can you might
    want to re-format your memory stick using FAT32. However you will want
    to first verify that your camera / picture frame can read memory sticks
    formatted with FAT32 (most modern devices made should be able to).

    Of course you can also format your memory stick using NTFS, but that
    will most likely restrict your memory stick to only working with Windows
    NT or later.

    Wikipedia has a ton of technical info for the curious: 'File Allocation
    Table - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia'

    Apologies, I was using the term "memory stick" as a generic term (I do
    have SONY memory sticks too).

    The device I was referring to in my post was a 2GB USB Flash Drive.
    Again, apologies for any confusion. Thanks for the clarification. As
    I am using variations of NT/XP and Vista on my machines, I'm OK for
    personal use.

    However, based on your comments, and similar advice from my IT advisor,
    I will carry a backup FAT32 formatted Flash Drive when travelling on
    business - in case I run into older o/s wherever I might give a
    presentation etc.

    Thanks again.

    files for a digital frame.

  13. I'm hoping you can help me. I reformatted the SD card and the files copied just fine - however ... when I format at NTFS, the slide show on the digital picture frame doesn't work. When I format on FAT32 I get about 210MB (176 pics). The slide show stops working. I have tried different SD cards and different frames (need a 2GB to get all the pics on that I want and I am using a PanDigital picture frame). This has been making me nuts.



    My pictures are a variety of pictures, some are scanned, and they come from a variety of camera types - but in my mind, since they are al jpg, that shouldn't matter.



    Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

    HI,
    I had the same problem as you had. Drove me mad - and I am only in m
    80's.
    I was trying to load 850 photos but couldnt get past 550. All th
    previous posts were right on the mark.
    Formast your sd card for FAT 32. The default appears to be 16.
    Have all your photos in one folder.
    Copy the folder to your sd card.
