i have a problem when I'm transferring files from my powerbook g4 to external hard disks such as lacie or ipod. it keeps popping up "THE FINDER CANNOT COMPLETE THE OPERATION BECAUSE SOME DATA IN file.avi COULD NOT BE READ OR WRITTEN. (ERROR CODE -36)
*This happens just for certain files, not all of them. I don't know whether the hard disk has an issue or the file is corrupted and if the file is corrupted i hope there is a program that can restore it

Can you copy the file locally, I mean duplicate it on your mac?
Also open the console app in your Utility folder and watch the messages in console.log or system.log when the copy error occurs. There may be a reference to the disk number and what is happening (IO error or such)
Let us know if anything shows up
