hm, never really thought it was a drive issue....cause this has happened for a while, then again come to think about it, i always use this hard drive. but i clicked on "Repair Disk" and this pops up...
"Verify and Repair volume "LACIE"
(in red) The Disk "LACIE" could no be unmounted.
thats all that comes up....
"Sorry, the operation could not be completed because an unexpected error occurred. (error code 0)"
5 bucks says that you are copying a file larger than 4 gigs onto a FAT32 formatted volume. You need to either 1, reduce the file size by splitting up the file, or 2, reformat your drive, or 3, get another drive and format it to Mac OS Extended (HFS+) with Disk Utility.
I am having the same problem, however, I can't break up my files into smaller bits because of the nature of the file. I am assuming the only thing I can do to get the files on is reformat. Is that correct?
If I reformat, what format should I use? Chances are this drive is going to be going from Mac to PC.
I am using a 250gb WD passport and trying to add three files around 10gb in size.
Individually the files cannot be larger than 4 gigs if you're going onto a FAT32 volume. Macs read and write to Mac OS Extended (HFS+) and FAT32. Macs can read from an NTFS, but can't write to it. There's the NTFS for mac which can allow you to do so, but I haven't tried it personally.
PCs can read and write to FAT32 and NTFS. You'll need the MacDrive software installed for a PC to write to a Mac formatted volume.

i think there is no problem! but i need to send big files to my external disk,not just 4 gb!there is any way to fix or change or format(FAT 32) or wherever!?

i was having the same problem with this error code. here is a work around:
if you're working with video files in FCP, drop your video into a FCP sequence, set in/out points to break up the video into sub-4GB segements, export them, however many it takes (knowledge of the codec you're using is important to know this). then bring these segments ALL into a sequence in order, then choose:
FILE: export: quicktime movie THEN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DIALOG BOX UNCHECK "make self-contained movie" then export. this will make a TINY quicktime movie that instead of being a self contained video is a reference video that references the segments. quicktime can play this movie through most programs. just copy the segments AND the reference video all over.
not a perfect solution, but it works if you need to get videos to a PC.
I was having the same error code. And i fix that error with this steps: I erase the disk with Disk Utility in fat then i go to time machine and i choose the Change Disk button then i select the drive and the drive would change the icon to the time machine icon. i turn off my time machine and then i can pass all my projects and all the stuff that i have in my computer without error.
