Just got a helmet cam. I took my forst videos but initially couldn't read the .avi files. The cam company pointed me at VLC which means I could view the movies but I am unable to copy the files to my hard disk.

 

"The Finder can’t complete the operation because some data in “130104-120116.AVI” can’t be read or written. (Error code -36)"

 

I'm struggling to find anything related to this specific problem as most appear to be trying to copy files from a Mac to a FAT32 formatted disk rather than the other way round and also implicate Snow Leopard although I'm getting the same problem on all my Macs (Tiger 10.4 Macbook, a Snow Leopard 10.6 iMac and a Mountain Lion 10.7 iMac)

 

The camera and card are brand new so I can't see it's likely to be a hardware issue.

 

I thought of trying to import the files directly into iMovie but iMovie doesn't recognise the camera although Finder is showing it.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks
