[Error 82] The directory or file cannot be created: 'I:\\Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves'

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 63, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 370, in _upload_books

WindowsError: [Error 82] The directory or file cannot be created: 'I:\\Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves'
-------------------------------

Getting this error on a number of books when trying to send to the microsd card, though some books have worked. Tried sending it to the device which works, but I want it on the sd card.

Anyone have a similar problem? Suggestions?

Thanks

If a card is formatted with FAT16 there is a limit to the number of files/folders allowed at the root level. If this is the issue, then the answer is to either format with FAT32 instead, or to move all the files/folders down a folder level so they are no longer at the root level.

It might also be something simpler such as the card having the write-protect switch set.
