same here, but happening when trying to copy less than 400MB of photos onto a 1GB SD card. it only gives me the error if I select all 3500 photos and try to copy to the root dir of the card. Upon further research, however (trying it in windows, which actually gave me a reason for the error, unlike OSX, which assumes my omnipotence), it seems only so many files can be stored on the root dir of a FAT formatted drive, which is funny since I have all 3500 in a subfolder.
I don't suppose you're using a FAT or FAT32 file system? Another problem with OSX and FAT/FAT32 is a 4 or 5GB cap on the size of files that can be moved to a FAT/FAT32 drive. I use Paragon NTFS drivers for OSX to make is so I can actually copy something larger than 5GB.
Maybe that helps.
