Hi!

Yes, I've tried to read related articles about this, but my case seems to be slightly different.

I was re-coding a video file. Process got corrupted somehow. I was importing from a simple USB external and saving the new files back to it as well.

So i got 2 files, which were unfinished and wouldn't play so I deleted them with the whole folder. And now when I try to empty trash, it shows this message:

--------------------------------------------------
The Finder canít complete the operation because some data in ďĒ canít be read or written.
(Error code -36)
--------------------------------------------------

I tried :
1.secure empty..
2.this command: sudo rm -rf ~/.Trash/

they were saying something about formatting the source drive. Is that the only way really?

thanks, hope u can help me
