Welcome to Apple discussions.
I do not read logs well, but it +"looks like"+ something in your address book is corrupted. Try excluding the address book from the TM backup and see what happens.

Hi, and welcome to the forums.
I assume you mean +Mac OS Extended (Journaled)+ Are you sure that neither is also +Case Sensitive?+
+Waiting for index to be ready (906 > 0)+
This indicates a problem with, or communicating with, your TC from this Mac.
Exclude your TC from any anti-virus scanning, and from Spotlight (System Preferences > Spotlight > Privacy).
+Error: (-36) SrcErr:YES Copying /Applications/Address Book.app/Contents/Resources/ABApplicationSuite.scriptTerminology
It's doubtful, but this might indicate a problem on your internal HD. Do a +Verify Disk+ (not permissions) via Disk Utility (in your Applications/Utilities folder). If that finds errors, you'll have to boot from your Leopard Install disc and use it's copy of DU, since you can't repair the disk you're running from. Post back if you need to do this but don't know how.iMac G5 1.8 GHz PowerPC, Mac OS X (10.5.7)

Thank you very much! Without the Address Book the backup went through. Now I need to find out what's wrong with my Address Book because I will need to back that up some time too.
That's just the application (programming), not your actual data. Your contacts, etc., are in +<your home folder>/Library/Application Support/AddressBook+ folder.
I'd suggest removing the exclusion and trying another backup. That error isn't always permanent, thus the application may be ok.
If it fails again, restore it from an older backup.iMac G5 1.8 GHz PowerPC, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 13, 2009 9:53 AM (in response to hpMac)I was getting the same "-36" error while trying to backup to a Lacie firewire external drive.
I had a lot of people telling me to re-format, erase, reinstall, run utility programs ... yada, yada, yada.
First off, test to see if it is the connection type (firewire). I reconnected the offending external drive via USB, restarted the drive and ... BINGO! ... all transfers went perfectly.
Once i knew it was the firewire connection and not the drive itself i simply unplugged my iSight camera (the only other firewire device connected to my machine), reconnected my external drive via firewire and the problem is now corrected.
Firewire buses seem to be very finicky things ... i would suggest eliminating all firewire devices from the machine (except, of course, the external drive you're trying to transfer to) and see if the problem goes away.
Like i said, i simply unplugged my iSight camera and the transfer to my external drive went perfect and my transfer rates went from an average of 4MB/sec to over 19MB/sec.
P.S. BTW - prior to the error and after i corrected the error by unplugging the iSight camera, my internal and external drives all checked out 100% on Disk Utility, Disk Warrior and TechTool Pro.Dual 2 gig G5, 6 gigs RAM: Dual 1.33ghz G4, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 20, 2009 4:31 PM (in response to Paul Williams3)I had the same issue and unplugging the external iSight camera fixed it. Problem is, I use the iSight a lot. Does anyone have a fix that would allow the camera to stay in the Firewire chain while using Time Machine? I don't want to move to the slower USB connection for the hard drive. This did not seem to be a problem until the latest system update.iMac G4, Powerbook G4, iPhone 3GS, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
