Brand new to all this. have a "simple" 60GB Seagate device which doesn't apparently have a cool name like the rest. Trying to pull a whole folder (which is a calendar year) of info over to it, I got the error code -50. Then on another folder I got "some items cannot be copied". Any hints? Help?

Please take a look at the drive label and post all the identifying information you see there, so we can know what device we're dealing with.

It's a 60GB. Part # 9w3532-556. The book with it just says Portable External Hard Drive. I bought it new about 3 years ago, a tech installed it. It somehow became separated from the computer one day and I just let it lay there. I just decided this am to reconnect it and tried to pull over a folder of data. Got that response. It will accept individual items. But not the 2 or 3 folders I would like to pull over intact.
Thanks for the quick reply!

OK, that is a
Is the error code given by Windows? I'm thinking it must be, since this drive doesn't come with a software that recognises the drive on connection.
What operating system is your computer?
Did you ever connect the drive to a Mac?
What happens if you try it on a different PC?
Follow these steps:
1) Right-click on (My) Computer > Manage > Event Viewer.
2) Every time the error occurs, look in the various tabs of the Event Viewer and let us know if you see errors or warnings at that time. Post back here with that info.

I am using a Mac G4 with 10.4.11. I don't have a different PC. I can't seem to find the "event viewer" tab anywhere on this thing.
Again, thanks for these replies, I am getting a little frustrated.

Oh, a Mac. Sorry.
Try Disk First Aid, but other than that I don't know.
