We have a very important video project in the Maxtor hard disc, which cannot be opened directly by the Mac computer( May be the transfer through a USB 2 port is not fast enough).Hence the files have to be transfered to the iomega disc which has Firewire ports.But the transfer is halted by the Error 36 code. Kindly suggest a solution.
