    Can't copy items from
    I am on a Mac Pro running 10.4.11 and when I try to copy a file from one drive to another, I get a grey "No" symbol (like the red sign in the Ghostbusters logo). I cannot move the file either amongst my internal hard drives, however I can copy files from my boot drive to the other drives, but that's it. Restarting has helped this issue before, but now it doesn't seem to be working. Permissions fixing isn't doing any good, and it's not finding any errors anyway.


    EDIT: It seems to only happen when I have certain music CDs inserted, but when I eject the CDs the problem remains until reboot. I can copy the songs from these CDs in iTunes without issue but I can't double click on the CD and drag tracks to a Finder folder. Does OSX have a bug with certain CDs?

    Try repairing your disk permissions using Disk Utility and see if that helps.
