The 255 character limit for paths is purely arbitrary and therefore simply unacceptable. Whatever is allowed no my hard drive should allowed on the Seagate; otherwise the Seagate is an inferior product. I had this problem myself and only discovered it 80% of the way into a one hour copy to the seagate, When the message popped up, I was astonished that it didn't even tell me the path and my only choice was to cancel or skip.
Is this just another case of corporate stupidity? Look like it! Is this just another case of a programmer who doesn't give a darn about the customer? Looks like it!
This situation is so ludicrous that I can not believe it is allowed to exist!!!!!

Files that won't copy are either incomplete or damaged or stuck in a bad sector, also when transfering files to any external media you will notice after a short while they get incredibly hot, I find this a lot with memory cards and the whole file moving seems to hang, it's possible the same is happening with your FA, try moving smaller files across and not letting the drive become too hot, if you don't believe me try it yourself with a MicroSD card and see how hot it gets after 3GB's of copying.
As for file name length, this seems to happen when some file gets a name that stretches too far, on any drive this happens btw, not just Seagate and externals.
