File To Copy File


Well-known member

Recently I've been having a problem with moving a file to a flash drive.

The file can be moved within the phone, but when to copy the file into the flash drive it gives me a message saying "failed to copy file"

I have a Note 8 and I would like to know is there a way to fix this problem, or another way to transfer the file to the flash drive?

Are you able to transfer other files to or from the flash drive? How are you connecting the drive to the phone?
