    transferring imovie to external hard drive
    I am unable to to transfer my imovie to my Rocstor 800 external hard drive. I get "Error code-51. Is this a formatting issue with the Rocstor? It is formatted as MacOS Extended. Should it be Extended (Journaled)?

    Can you copy anything to your external drive?

    It does not have to be a journal file system. By extended, i am assuming you mean HFS+. that should be okay.

    No knowing which way you are trying to copy your data over, so I wil ask.

    Have you trying copying the data from you internal drive to the external drive?
    Also have you tried to save the data from with in the iMovie application to the external drive?

    i'm having a similar problem... i tried saving from imovie directly to the external.. and it says the drive is locked.. or doesn't have enough room...

    i know it has enough room and it can't be locked because i dragged pictures and music to it without a problem...

    i'm stumped... HELP!!!
