Misc : Error 0X80070052 on USB Flash Drives

I came across this at the weekend.

Trying to copy some files from a DVD to a flash drive and kept getting this error.

Tried everything - reformatted etc. but no joy.

So Mr. Google to the rescue.

One link suggested that the problem was that there is a limit to the number of files you can copy to the root directory of a USB drive.

Sounded suspect but made a folder under root and then copied the files to the folder.

Suddenly everything worked!

Amazing!

Enjoy!
