Hey all! :)

I have an external lacie D2 that my dad bought home from work. He had a bunch of stuff left on there by a colleague, who used mac OSx- thus was formatted for mac os journaled. I said no probs, i will format it as FAT32, you can do the rest, i copied the data off to an external of my own formatted it for FAT32, hes now copied a bunch of stuff onto it after reformatting it as a NTFS drive but also needs the data i copied off in the first place.

I have installed NTFS 3G, MacFuse and also Paragon 3G for mac OSX no dice.. I can read, copy from, and see all the data on the drive.. even save stuff to it. but cant copy data which i have access for- i have repeatedly just received an error message, "The Finder can’t complete the operation because some data in “music” can’t be read or written.
(Error code -36)" (also included as attachment)

So im guessing i need to do some funky terminal stuff.. but im not sure what!! lol :eek: I have tried using cp, in terminal, dragging the source to terminal window, then the destination to the window, checked that it says all the right stuff.. -bash: cp/Volumes/Audio/music: No such file or directory
Petes-MacBook-Pro:~ PWelly$

What am i doing wrong?

Cheers in advance :)

hmm ok.. its mostly pro audio recordings. What would people recommend for getting rid of this corruption?? :S
Perhaps you could try copying multiple files at a time.
If the copy stops on one batch, you can test each file individually and find which one is corrupt.
