This seems to be related to a network problem, specifically, authentication. Has anything been changed or upgraded recently? There are a number of references to the error on the internet. I have attached them below.
Firstly, one user has looked at the /var/log/messages log file and found the additional error "uam: uam not found (status=-1"
Can you check that log?

A fix suggested by one user is:
"Turns out I needed to update the nettalk version that was included with YDL 2.3 to version After that and a restart apple talk works perfectly, on both our os9 and X machines." Maybe there is a lead there.

Attached bits from other users below.
Apparently, this error is "-5002 afpBadUAM: AFP Bad UAM," something to do with the User Authentication Module.

I've looked in var/log/messages
>>and it says : uam: uam not found (status=-1)

Good Luck. If you need to talk further, pls post it here. Rgds,

The first download on tubetv goes alright but then when it is going to convert it says error

If you don't want to give descriptions, we won't want to give answers. I'm not a mind reader, I'm a geek, so I don't know what you mean when you describe 10% of the problem.
What computer, what ipod/iphone, what flash were you converting, what did the error say, etc.

Macintosh error code -10810

cause it has compatibility issue. But by this time its your hardware. Try downloading other version which is nearer to your older version. Be sure to complete the zip file before you expand it or else it prompts you again the same error code.

Error -61

First off, anything LACIE is bottom of the barrel. Don't take it personal, but if i have a nickel for every Lacie D2 drive I've had to recover...oh wait, sometime i got more than what people paid for them to recover what was on them........think about it for a second. Error -61 is a bad master directory block. The drive has a directory, like any book or "volume". It's where the drive stores the information based on the location of content on the drive. Which means your drive will fail soon because it will not be able to retrieve what you are putting on it, because it is internally failing.

MacBook Error 36

Error 36 means “I/O error” (input/output error) and does not explain what the cause of the problem is, sorry.

Check your Mac for bad blocks you can use Disk Utility.
