The finder cannot complete the operation

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I've just upgraded to a larger Verbatim external drive and I get the following error message when I go to take files off my existing external drive across to it. I am using Mac Operating System and trying to search a solution. Can I fix this error ASAP.

Thanks for any assistance.


The finder cannot complete the operation because some data in “and 1 mixtape Vol 6. mpg” can’t be read or written.

(Error code – 36)

Hello Michael A Fisher,

It seems that there is a problem with "and 1 mixtape Vol 6. mpg". For the finding process to be complete, you have to change the properties to the .mpg file into readable. How you do that? Go to the file properties and on the General tab you will find some boxes to check. Check that one with read-only.

Take care.
