Thread: Copying files to Zip.
12-21-2005, 06:57 AM #1Copying files to Zip.
I have been trying to drag files to a 750 zip for saving as backup, but I keep getting an error code of -36. What is this? and why do I get it. I don't have a problem with burning a disk with the same files. These files are stored on my external hard drive. I didn't have this problem with these files on my G4 powerbook running Panther, but now I have a iMac G5 with Tiger.http://www.geocities.com/earltashjr/EARLTHEPEARL.HTML

-36 is an IO error. Bad Zip disk?Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!

Is this an internal or external drive? Checked all the connections/wires? Can you copy FROM a Zip disk?
Try doing a repair disk from a booted system install CD on your hard drive. Also repair permissions (just in case).Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!
