Hi, I have search for this error code on the forums (and Google) and found nothing relating to it.


I have an iMac (2.8 GHz i5, 12GB memory running Mac OS X 10.6.8) and I have been trying to empty my trash. I get the following error every time:


"The operation cannot be completed because an unexpected error occurred -8003"


As mentioned above - no amount of searching comes back with a solution to the error. Has anyone had any experience of this issue before and know of a solution?


Many thanks in advance.



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.7)
