    I am a recent switcher. When I first got my MacBook I connected my Windows formatted iPod to the MacBook to transfer my purchased iTunes music, and everything worked fine.

    Now I want to transfer the iTunes music folder from my Mac to a PC (both Vista and XP) over my local network. However, when I try to do this I get the following error message:

    Error 0x800700FE: The specified extended attribute name was invalid.

    I get the same error message if I try to transfer the individual music folders (eg Oasis).

    I have no trouble transferring the folders for song/albums that I have subsequently downloaded to the Mac from iTunes. I only have the problem with the music I originally transferred from the iPod.

    I have been trying to research extended attributes to see if I can edit this, but it all goes over my head. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for your note, but I have no trouble transferring files between my Mac and PC's except for the itune's files that I noted above. I can also play a Mac's iTunes files in a PC's iTunes without a hitch, but I want to transfer the actual file. My problem is limited to transferring itunes music folders that were created in my Mac when I synced my Windows formatted ipod. The problem specifically relates to problems with Windows properly dealing with extended attributes that are associated with these files.
