    Hi,

    I was copying the contents from a DVD disc to a System using Finder. While copying 2 of its 10 files I hit the following pop-up error:

    The Finder can’t complete the operation because some data in “filename” can’t be read or written. (Error code -36)

    All the 10 are video files. I feel the issue must be with the DVD. But I am able to play the entire file from the DVD. How can I not copy it when I can read it? Is there any free software I can use to correct such an issue?
    Note: The DVD is not copyrighted so I am not doing anything illegal here.

    I use a Macbook Pro, Intel Core 2 Duo with a 2.26 Ghz and 2Gb Memory.
    Operating System: Snow Leopard.

    Yes. It is a video DVD with a VIDEO_TS folder and the videos are encapsulated inside .vob files.

    I tried disc utility and it says input output error. Hence I think either the disc is bad or it has a flavor of copy protection. Is there any way to nullify copy protection? It is not illegal since it is not a proprietary disc.

    Are there any apps to solve this issue?

    Fairmount. It will copy and if there is some copyright it can't get past it will post "bad sectors" which is your indication that the DVD cannot be copied over.

    Remember though, bagels are good, pirating is wrong. Think twice before you copy a DVD ... - Fairmount.

    Look at the second link I provided, there are four applications that can help you rip the video DVD, but if Disk Utility had its problems with a not copy protected DVD, you might be out of luck, but it is always good to try those other applications.

    Re:

    Thanks!! I also came across this nice software called "MacTheRipper". It has pretty compact interface.

    I am totally against piracy. But these are just tutorial video DVDs created by my bunch of friends. I wanted to know whether their DVDs are copyable and are working well.
