obviously, I'm using the same List of Errors as Bengt - -1, +1, but no error 0 ..
I mostly assume, your ext. harddrive is formatted to 'Windows'/fat32 (=select drive in Finder, Apple-i, read under 'format') and your videos are longer than ~20min .. fat32 has a 4GB-per-file-limit => export kaputt ..
"the operation can't be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code 0)"
Whatever source of that error, it isn't from any Apple software. According to Apple, 0 means "No error"!
So it might be a third party driver for the external drive throwing the error message and NOT providing a proper error code (error number).
There problem appears to be the size of the files you're moving.
Is it possible to move them in smaller chunks? That's the only solution that seems to be out there. Apple problem or not, it still ***** - you'd expect to be able to move a few largish files in this day and age.
