Seems many forget about directory limits.
Yes, that happens when you copy all files to the ROOT or top directory.
It's a limitation with no fix planned. I'd use a subdirectory.
You Nailed It!
You were absolutely right! I created a sub-directory and all of the files were transferred, thank you so much!
how do i create a sub-directory? im having troubles as well
Today folk would call this a FOLDER.
The same thing is happening to me. Trying to transfer music files onto memory card 1GB. I am fairly new to computers and don't know how to create this sub-directory. Can you help?
Try creating a folder to put the files in.
You saved Christmas!
I was preparing several digital picture frames as gifts and ran into the root directory limit problem and had been trying for hours to copy the files onto an SD card. Creating a subdirectory for the files solved the problem and allowed me to load the digital pictures frames.
Thank you for the new information.
I hadn't thought about this issue with those new photo frames.
this might be a really silly question, but...
I'll probably figure this out soon after I post this, but I'm really having trouble with my 2GB SD card and my Philips digital photo frame. The frame recognizes the pictures when they are loaded onto the SD card as individual files, but there is a limit to the number of individual files that can be in the root directory, as discussed above.
So, I assumed that to create a sub-directory, all I had to do was to create a folder on the SD card and keep the files in this folder. I did that, but when I put the SD card back into the frame, the photo frame doesn't read/recognize the folder. The folder does have 1.37GB of photos in it. Have I not successfully created a subdirectory? Is there another secret?
I knew I should have waited to ask my question. I changed the folder type from "documents" to "pictures" under the properties tab on my computer and copied that folder to the SD card. And now the photo frame recognizes that there were pictures on the SD card. Was it really that simple?
it may seem trite, but thank you, thank you, for posting to this forum on this issue. i've been tearing my hair out trying to crack this memory card dilemma and this posting solved the issue perfectly.
i dont know how to download music to my sd memory card for my cell phone/mp3 player. please help me!!!!
If your PC has a built-in memory card reader or you have a memory card reader that you can connect to a USB-slot, just put your memory card in it and use My Computer to transfer the files.
If you don't have such a device, see the manual of cell phone/mp3 player on how to do it. You might need additional software. Please tell make and model.
the files are being transferred, but when i put the card back into my phone, it says that there are no mp3 files in my_music on card. what does that mean? i even changed the transferred files to mp3 format.
Re: no mp3 files
Well, we can't see the card.
And we don't know if my_music is the folder they should be in.
And we don't know exactly what it "says".
And we can't see if you put them in there.
In fact, we don't even know what phone you have, because you still didn't tell it.
We even have to believe you "changed" the transferred files to mp3 format in the right way and gave them a valid name with the right extension. You didn't tell.
So all we can say is, that something is wrong.

ive got a samsung sch-u520 phone and a 1gb sd card
Trouble with putting music from comp to sd memory card
I have a motorola moto w755 and I have a 2gb memory card for it for vcast, but the verizon guy said that I would be able to put music on there from my windows media player as long as i put it into a seperate folder. The windows media player recognizes the sd memory card to sync music onto it. I went to the sync bar, put all of the music I wanted to on it, then it synced for me. I opened the tad on the start menu that says "my computer" I clicked it, I found my memory card, clicked upon it, then there were folders that said "my_music", my_pics, my_sounds, then another folder that I had put all of the music into that said "my music" so I put the "my music" folder into the "my_music" folder thinking it wouldnt be that big of a deal. I then took out the memory card from my laptop and put it into my phone, it recognizes the card, but no music is found. If you could help please let me know, thanks!
Depends on what
I have a memory card reader but cannot find anything on it to take the the memory card (1 gb)as the card is too small . Is there an adapter I could buy for this and then would it work.
I am a complete novice at this so please show a bit of patience.

Re: memory card reader
There are many types of memory cards, and not all devices would support all types. My advice: go to the shop with your card and ask for a reader that fits.
troubles putting music from Itunes onto my SD memory card
I try to put music files into the my_music folder on my 2 GB SD memory card. After I have done so, I put the card into my phone and the phone says "Error in playing the file". I've already reformatted the card several times and then put the music onto it and nothing changes. I don't know if I need certain software for it or if I need to download a certain driver? My phone is a Motorola Hint QA30
Make sure the ENCODING is something the player can use.
I run across folk that download and don't know about this.
16 GB SD Card
AWESOME Thanks R. Proffitt I thought someone had sold me a faulty SD card.
Glad it helped.
This trivia seems to be applicable to many sizes and "things."
THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!
I have been trying to figure out (for a week now) how to transfer all my pictures to a digital picture frame for a Christmas present. This thread helped me along! I put all my pictures in a folder, changed it to "pictures" under the customize tab under Properties and then transferred it to my SD card. And there they are! THANKS SO MUCH!! :o)

How do I DOWNLOAD MP3 Files onto an SP 2GB CARD?
How many files have you copied into the root (i.e. top) directory of the SD Card?
As explained above, there is a limit on the number of files which can be stored in the top level directory/folder (the limit varies from one Card to another, for technical reasons, but is typically an even number).
When that limit is reached, the only way to add further files to the Card is to create one or more sub-directories (a.k.a. sub-folders), and add the files in those sub-directories.
Consult the instructions which came with the Card to see if there is a special name that a sub-folder for storing mp3 files needs to have.
