  • Saving photos to flash drives

    I have a 512mb flash drive that is completely empty. I just tried to save a 280kb JPEG file to it and it wouldn't go - saying that there wasn't enough free space. This has me really confused. Does anyone know what's going on?

    Is there a lock feature on it? I had the exact same error and once I unlocked it I was all set.

      How do you unlock it?

        If you're trying to save the photo through a Mac try taking it to a PC and deleting the "trashes" file. I had this problem with my drive too. This file doesn't show up on Macs, but there may be a way to see it that I'm unaware of.

              Depends on the card. There might be a little button on the actual flash drive with a lock and unlock feature. Mine does.

                Same thing happened to me...I was about to send it back until I found a switch on it that was the same color as the flash drive....it was so well blended!

                      on this note, kinda a no brainer tip but many dont do it. on a PC (not sure about macs) use the "remove hardware safely" tool when unpluggin flash/thumb drives, they are know to easily be corrupted for not unplugging safely.

                        I think the ejection on mac is much easier than PC.....one reason why I like mac more than pc.!

                          Another thing to look at when this happens: hidden files.
                          Your drive can fill up with hidden files. The option to show hidden files is in the control panel.

                            It was the trash right?

                                There are plug ins for 3d particle generations in PS but I don't know anything about them. More for After Effects. Are they high res for print production? Aren't they designed more for animation, gaming...

                                MarComm and just plain Comm are considered two separate fields too. Still can't figure out why.
                                There seems to be a very tenuous line drawn at the manufacturing/visual boundary.
                                Could be that...

                                All true, but it's also part of the reason I think it's a very broad area. Continue through Walmart to the receiving docks and stockrooms at the back of the store where everything is still freight-boxed...

                                I like the concept too...runs rings around the old one. But there's something about the horn shape. Look at more examples including the old logo, where the horns are a bit longer, more slender, and curve...
