    Hey guys, I'm having some issues with Finder. I'm trying to copy files to my USB Flash drive but it keeps presenting me with "Error -36", saying that files can't be read/written (have attached screen shot). I've tried reformatting the USB Flash Drive, and scanned my HDD for permission failures, but nothing. All the files work fine on my iMac, but not on the USB Flash Drive. What could be wrong?

    Watch this video and follow his instructions. This was driving me crazy transferring over a large folder with tons of media files and now it works great!
