I just bought a 2GB micro sd card and I noticed it won't let me put more
than 174 files in the root. I tried to fill it up with MP3's but once it
reached 174 files it told me it was full or had some unknown error
preventing me from writing to it. I added a folder in the root and started
putting more files in there and everything works fine, but I was just
wondering why I have to do this ? I should be able to put 5000 files in the
root if I want to right ?
The SD card is for my phone (Nokia 6126).. same behaviour whether it's in
the phone (data transfer mode) or out (memory card reader).
Re: SD card limitations
Microsoft has always had a limit on the number of files in the
root of floppys/drives.
Just put things in a sub-directory, and when that fills up,
they automatically add blocks to that dir.
The limit for fat 16 drives was at about 75 entries in a subdir,
causing system slowdown for more than that, because of having to
scan the additional dir blocks.
