    Im getting an error when trying to copy my iPhoto library off my ext drive:

    The Finder can't complete the operation because some data in "iPhoto Library" can't be read or written. (Error code -36)

    I found a couple suggestions but nothing has worked. Ive checked the drive for issues with Disk Utility, Ive tried Forklift instead of Finder, Ive tried impressing the folder with my library and that errors out too.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    I've never found a solution, anyone know of a fix?
