    I am new to the Mac world but I wonder if anyone has had the same issue and could tell me how to rectify it?

    I have two hard drives on my Mac Book Pro. The main operating hard drive works fine. However the second hard drive will not copy data to another drive and I get the following errer message:

    "The Finder can’t complete the operation because some data in “………………” can’t be read or written.
    (Error code -36)"

    I have re formattee the drive three or four times and no matter what type of system I reformat to I get the same message.

    Is it a MacBook issue or is this a Mac issue or is there a fault with the Hard Drive itself?

    Can anyone Please tell me in simple terms what to do to rectify this ??

    Many thanks

    Your drive probably has bad sectors and is going out.

    You're not immune to hard drive death because you bought a Mac, unfortunately

    Alas, yes. What they said.

    Hard drive failure is a matter of when, not if.
