    Recently I tried to copy some pictures to a SD Card while the card is
    formated FATS for 1GB it would only copy to 248MB of the media. I tried
    reformating and stopping VISTA from using the Windows Memory Boost option
    with nosuccess. I can't finsd anything online to give me a hint where to do
    next. Thanks for your suggestions

  2. Allen,
    Were you trying to copy many files to the root of the drive (that is to
    e:\)? If so that may be your problem. There is a limited number of files
    (512 comes to mind but that may be wrong) that can reside in the root of a
    drive. If that is your problem then start over. After deleting all those
    files you copied, create a folder (E:\pictures for instance) now copy all
    your pictures into that folder.
