    I have several 1GB SD (Kingston) flash drives that I used to carry MP3 files for my MP3 player. I don't know why but I can only put 300MB or so on each SD. It would tell me that "unable to create filename or directory" or something like that. I thought may be my MP3 filenames are too long, so I shorten them all, but it didn't fix it. Then I decided to create a couple folders on one of the SD and put the MP3 files in there. That seems to let me put around 500MB or so on, but my MP3 player couldn't read the MP3 files through the folders. Any ideas on how I can solve the problem to let me use the full capacity of the SD flash drives or how to get my MP3 player to read the MP3 files in the folders. That was the reason I had to buy several SD flash drives. I couldn't afford the iPod. Please help! Thanks much!

    make sure you have "view hidden files" on. a lot of times music files will come with images attached to them used for folder pictures and the such.

    Thanks SilentImage. I tried that but no such luck. The files are clean by the way. Nothing attached. It probably has something to do with the file structure in windows, but I don't know how to fix it.
