Hello All

I'm trying to back up some data using my iPod but some files a refusing to copy, for example i'll drag a folder into iPod and it will start copying but will stop and say 'icon could not be copied' so i stop it and nothing but an empty folder has copied to iPod.

I've tried it several times with diff folders and get such mesages as filename not recognised, file format not supported.

Its a 4G formatted to FAT32 and am using my G4 iBook. I was wondering if there were certain things that FAT 32 won't store, i.e. lmitations on filenames etc..(i know there's an individual file limit but don't think this is an issue here)

Cheers Guys
QUOTE Thanks
