Sometimes when copying files over to a flash drive, I get an error.

Pertinent to Jake's question, if your flash drive is formatted as FAT32, then there is a 4 GB limit as to the size of the file that can be copied - so, we need to know the formatting and also the type & size of files involved.

If the file(s) is under 4 GB, have you tried to copy other files, i.e. is it a specific file or multiple files - if the latter, then the flash drive may be the issue - have you tried other USB drives? Dave :)

Thank you that solved my problem.

Well, please let us know what the issue was, i.e. FAT32, file > 4GB, bad flash drive, or a combination? Might help others to know - thanks. Dave :)
