I'm getting the well documented "path is too deep" error when I try to copy a file from my HD to a new IPOD.
I read many of the e.e. posts about this error, but before I continue, maybe someone can narrow down which links & subjects are actdually relevant to this situation:
This is NOT on a network
The virtual memory has been switched from manual size to "let windows manage size" - no diff
WRITE CACHING is OFF (optimize for quick removal is ON) for the IPOD
this error occurs when I use Win Explorer to manually copy files. (I've turned on the "disk access" feature by checking Manual file maint in itunes prefs). If I try to use itunes to copy the file to IPOD, it fails without a message.
When I copy the file from the source folder to the root dir (a shorter folder path), I am able to copy the file successfully.
So, assuming I don't want to change all my longer file paths...
Which of the fixes seems most relevant?
