The Parameter Is Incorrect or Device Not Ready

Hello, I have a pocket drive that I have been saving and copying a variety of files to and from for the longest.  It is a 5 gig and has 1.25 gigs left.  I can edit, add and copy some files but suddenly I cannot copy some other files off the device to another folder.  I keep getting similar errors as follows;

Cannot copy <filename>The Parameter Is Incorrect
or
Device Not Ready
or
Cannot rename <filename>: Cannot find the specified file.

I beleive I experienced this problem before and resolved it but can't remember how I did it.  Any ideas?

Thanks.

Generally this is a tell-tale sign that the device is failing. You might check with the manufacturer's web site and download the diagnostic software they have. Run a test on the drive and see what the results are. Also try running a full file system check on the drive. Right Click on the drive in My Computer, select properties, select tools, and "Check Now".
