I need some help, I have a 2Gig jumpdrive and Im trying to store some files on it. When It reaches a capacity of about 207mb it gives me an error message that my drive is full when I still have about 1.7Gigs. Does anyone know why? Thanks

Because you put all the files in the root or top...

The top or root directory can only hold some hundred entries. Next time make a subdirectory or "folder."
