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.

Did you modify your Time Machine files in any way using Finder or the command line? This can cause this error. There's a program called Trash It that might be helpful if all you want is to get rid of those files.

Error code -36 when I put files from external HD to another external HD


Are the external drives formatted using the same file structure?
If one is FAT and the other is NTFS, for example, Macs might complain.
Are you copying files to a drive you use with a PC?

I can't burn CDs (maybe one out of 10 will write).The computer gives an error code 0x8002006e . Turns out there's a lot of talk on the Apple site about this but nobody has an answer. The drive also isn't...


  • just press the cmd+alt+esc keys
  • in the window that appeare, choose the finder application and press the restart button
  • insert a blank cd-r and try to burn the cd from iTunes or the finder.

It seems like a workaround but because I'll never restart my Mac (I always use the standby) I don't have to restart the finder application everytime I want to burn a cd.

I hope the "snow leopard" will fix the problem!

hope that helps anyone out there ..

36 is an I/O error. Your card may need to be re-formated. Possibly replaced. Is your memory card seen by the phone?
