The library supports FAT16 and FAT32 file systems on standard SD cards and SDHC cards. It uses short 8.3 names for files”.

I use extrootfs ext4 system on SD card and find simple method how to copy files (mp3 txt ....) to this SD card from winXP

Is the SD card in the Yun ? The Yun supports FAT16, FAT32, EXT3 and EXT4. Perhaps you could use FAT32.

Windows XP is not longer supported, you should get a newer operation system.

There are drivers for other file systems, I have used them a few times, but they didn't work very well.

Yes SD card with extrootfs in running yun :-)

How to copy files without remove SD card from yun ?

Only ftp server or exist simplest method ?

Hello, what about winscp? Connect to the yun using root@ipofyouryun, password arduino (unless changed). Then navigate to /mnt and see where the SD is mounted (usually /mnt/sda1 or similar).
