I am trying to copy some files, lots of data (about 45 GB) from my internal hard drive to an external USD hard disk and I receive an error:

the finder cannot complete the operation because some data in <file name> could nor be read or written (error code -36)

I have then tried to copy only that particular file and it failed. It reproduces at will for this particular file. I have run Disk Utility on my local hard disk, I have repaired the permissions but the error still persists. Anybody has any suggestions?
