I am out of space on my hard drive.  I want to export my movie files and possibly photos to an external drive.  I have NOT been able to simply drag and drop the selected files to the external drive.  The only option I've been able to use is to "burn" the folder to a disc (i.e., a DVD) and this is a very big hassle since the largest DVD I can find is only 8 GB (I have 53GB of media to move off the HD).  Does anyone have any suggestions? 

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7)
