Default Error while storing MP3 songs

I own a PILOT MP-113 (4GB capacity) MP3 player.
I have stored less than 200 mp3 songs.
While the player is connected to my computer, I tried to store additional songs (from within the computer), or to create a folder, and got the following error:

"The root of drive E:\ is formatted with the FAT file system and can only store a limited mumber of items. Store the items in a subfolder, or reformat the drive using the NTFS file system".

What steps should I take to overcome this problem?

Thanks,
David

Well first, I've never heard of a PILOT MP-113, so this is not the voice of experience.

The root of a device can only store a limited number of items. The root is the portion of the device that is addressed without a folder name, ie E:\. The solution would appear to be to remove some items from the root, thus allowing the creation of a couple of folders. Then music files would be placed in those folders. However, you stated that you couldn't create a folder, so I'm guessing that you have already been down this route.

If this player is the TEAC MP-113, it's manual (http://www.teac.eu/fileadmin/project...al_english.pdf) contains the following item
Quote:
Maximum number of folders and files that can be saved under a directory are 30 and 500, respectively.
You may wish to run Windows "Disk Cleanup" on the player. Or it may be necessary to format the player (although I don't know if this is a good idea for that player).

BTW, another solution is to get a Sansa Clip+ or Clip Zip.

Good luck, Steve

Thank you Steve!
As you said, the root of a device can only store a limited number of items.
I have deleted some songs and then I was able to create some folders, in which I stored all my MP3 songs.

Thanks again,
David

Create a folder called "MUSIC" in the root of the folder, and put all the music files in there. Do NOT store them in the root,...the player becomes confused.
