I've searched for this error many times. I know it's been posted before but everything is over three years old that I've found or doesn't have my solution. When I try moving files from my Macbook Pro to my 2TB Hitachi hard drive, I keep getting the error "Finder cannot complete this operation because some data in "*file name*" can't be read or written. Error code -36)." It then auto-ejects the hard drive. I can't even move a 364.9mb .avi file or a folder of 13 songs so it's not the size limit that's the problem. I installed Macfuse NTFS-3g on my mac and my hard drive is formatted in NTFS. I used to have no problems moving stuff between the hard drive, my mac, and my desktop pc, but I haven't been able to move anything from the mac and hard drive for the past 5 months. I can move files between my drive and pc perfectly fine. I've tried the "dot_clean" command in terminal and dragged the entire volume as the path. I've cleaned the source path too. Does anyone have a solution? I'd like to refrain from reformatting my hard drive, but I will if that's the only solution.
