Mac Error Code

    Hi, been having a problem with one of my USB drives when trying to copy folders over. I get a error code (Error code-36) saying it can't complete. If I copy over the contents of each folder it will do it but not if I try to drag and drop the whole thing.

    Reformatted my USB drive but still getting the same. Seems to only effect folders I've recently created as old ones will copy fine.

    Any ideas on things to check?

    Yep, tried it with a completely clear drive. No difference between ones that will copy and ones that won't in folder read & write permissions also, all folders created by me on the same mac too.

    Check there's no underscores or slashes in the file names, I've had fussy drives before which 'complex' file names wouldn't copy too. :up:
