Hello, I'm writing this hoping that someone has any technical advice to give me, because I am stumped and google is not much more help. At first I thought I had an iTunes problem. I was trying to sync some files to my iPod and kept getting a "cannot be read from or written to" error (before I upgraded it said the disc or iPod could not be read from, after the new iTunes upgrade it says the file cannot be read from). Anyway, I was sure that I was still an iTunes issue. However for an unrelated issue I ended up copying the file from my iTunes library to my desktop and I received this error. "The Finder cant complete the operation because some data in filename cant be read or written. (Error code -36)" It gets to 499mb out of 2gb before stopping, after repairing my hard drives (according to disc utility they are all okay) and restarting it got to 511mb before stopping and displaying this error message. The file is not corrupt as it plays fine in iTunes and VLC. Is there anything I can do to fix this, to move this file and to get it onto my iPod?
