When I copy media over to the Western Digital MyBook 500gig drive I get an error code -1309 that doesn't allow me to finish copying the file over. I have a PowerBook G4, Mac OS X Ver 10.4.1 connected to the drive.
Do you know how I can resolve this problem?

In order to fix this problem, be sure that the drive is formatted to NTSC. Mine was, however, when I started loading mp3 files to the drive first, it somehow got reformatted to FAT32. I don't know how, but it did. Copy your mkv files FIRST!
1. Connect your 500gig drive as the slave of your smaller boot drive. 2. Go to http://freewareapp.com/western-digital-data-lifeguard-tools_download/ and get the Western Digital Lifeguard tools. 3. Run the executable to install WD tools. 4. Run that application.
You'll notice there is a Drive to Drive Copy utility. This will clone your new 500gig drive from the smaller drive. When the utility finishes copying the drive, shut down. Remove the smaller drive, and set your 500 gig drive as master/single. Reboot, and you should be running off the new drive.
It is possible that your old drive was an IDE drive and your new one is SATA. If so, you may need to enter Setup on the reboot, go to the Boot menu, and set the boot device to the new drive type.
For systems prior to OS X;
error -1309 fileBoundsErr: file's EOF offset mark or size is too big
If your disk is formated as HFS rather than HFS+, you can get this error.
For OS X;
Error 1309 is a file bounds error.
In other words there is some discrepancy with the file's size or end-of-file marker, or some variation on this. This sounds like a read error not a write one i.e the problem lies with the original file.
Now, you may ask, "How do I make it HFS+?"...
You would have to reformat the drive to change the formatting to HFS+ (Extended).
Backup anything you can't replace on that disk, then use Disk Utility in your Utility folder to reformat the disk.
Use Extended formating option.
