"-36" error message using Acomdata External Hard Drive

Have a new Acomdata 500 GB External HD. Using it with an eMac 1.42 GHz PowerPC G4 with 512 MB DDR SDRAM. Seem to have installed it properly, then began trying to move movie files. Several files moved properly, but since then all I get is a "-36" error message. My Mac is in desperate need of moving these files to the EXTERNAL, to free up memory. These movie files are chewing up space. But what's with the Acomdata? And the error message? And how to fix???

Have you tried taking the files off of the drive and repartitioning and reformatting the drive?
How is the drive formatted? Fat? Fat32 or HPFS? What version of Mac OS are you running? It is possible, depending on the version of the OS and the driver for the OS that it can have problems with drives that have partitions larger than 128 GB. It is also a bios limitation with older systems.
Look to see if there is an updated driver for the OS X version you are running.
Also check in the Disk Utility to see how the drive is partitioned and formatted. If it is going to be a Mac only drive, partition and format it as HPFS. If it is a drive that you will use in Windows as well, use Fat 32 and limit the partitions to 128 GB or less.

You could also try a newer version of OS X like Tiger or Leopard. They are both more stable than older versions and have better support for devices.

Cheers and good luck.

Acomdata external harddrive is not recognize on vista


I had a similar issue with windows 2008 and windows 7. the drive lost all its info and had to be reinitialized under both of those O.S.'s..
You can try that as long as it doesn't have any data you need.. Once you do that the drive will work and you can start using it. The file system under vista and above is slightly different than xp.
