    Hello!

    I'm trying to copy files across to an external flash drive (mp3 player), but a warning "This item [-] cannot be copied because there is not enough free space" keeps popping up, even though there is enough space!
    I have deleted emptied the trash with the drive plugged in but to no avail!

    Can anybody give me any help?
    Thanks in advance

    Are there any other files on the MP3 player? How big are the files that you're trying to move right now?

    There are other files on the player, yes. I'm trying to move across a 6mb song, and it says that there's 400-or-so mb free on the player itself.
