Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
I can't copy my files over to my macbook pro says:
'D_S store could not be read or written. error code -36'.
I have previously defragmented the drive with `idfrag' and it worked but now even it won't even defrag and says:
Unable to move extent (12146958, 8) to 2011283 for file "/Audio/Pro Tools Sessions/Tape Music 7/masters/masters/Session File Backups/masters.bak.01.ptf" (CNID 4394); HFS errors:
hfs_extent.c:422 (from 0x40bb2):
(54) Disk block move failed (from 97175664, to 16091344, blocks 64, size 512, errno 5)
any help is much appreciated.
That drive is not suitable for pro-tools. Look for something that has the Oxford 911 or 924 chipset. HFS is the format. Did you format that drive after you bought it? Are you using both windows and os X with either boot camp or parallels?
