I have a 500GB My Book (WD5000D032-000) which is out of warranty as I have had it for a few years now.
It is formatted with FAT and when I try and transfer large files/folders from either another external hard drive or my Mac Book Pro, I get an error code 36 saying a certain file does not have permission, even though the folder permissions are both read and write!
Also when I try and format the drive, it un mounts itself.
This is very frustrating. Does anyone know a solution?
I am using a Mac Book Pro OSX 10.6.8
