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.

Fixing error code 8003 on macbook


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 ..

I am trying to transfer a file to an external hard drive from a Mac Powerbook G4. I get an error code 8065 and I am unable to copy the file.


8065 refers to a cross-platform error (like between a p/c system and a mac system).
You could try copying your file to a cd and burn the cd to be compatible with pc or mac and then transfer to the other system.

10657 error code


I got the solution to this problem at the Genius Bar.
As they explained it, Time Machine is software that saves files on the backup drive in a format that can only be read by Time Machine. So, when you open Time Machine, you can click on any file and it will open.
If you try to open a file directly from the backup drive, it needs a program to open it, and if Time Machine is not open, you get the error message.

If your computer crashes, when you get it fixed (or get a new Mac)and when you connect the backup drive, Time Machine will recognize it, will ask you if you want to associate it with your computer, and when you say yes, all your backed-up files are availabel and copied back into the computer.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know.
If this solves your issue, please be kind to rate it.
