I immediately started loading "My Documents" on to the disk. It accepted them readily with no problems, all 2. something gigabytes of them. Since that time I have discovered that since the Sandisk comes already formated in the Fat32 format. I can only load 4. something gigs into it. After trying many advices from different forums I would still get the response of "This device is write protected, try again or insert a new disk" Therein lies the tale.


The 4GB limitation of FAT32 pertains to the maximum size of 1 file only. There should be not problems in copying multiple files totaling 4GB or over. You may want to transfer them over in smaller 'chunks' though, as you may or may not have enough RAM on your computer to handle such a large transfer all in one bite.
