Using OS 10.6.5 I am seeking to transfer iPhoto library to an external disk. I was able to transfer Aperture library with no problem, but with iPhoto I get the following error message "The Finder can’t complete the operation because some data in “iPhoto Library” can’t be read or written._(Error code -36)"__I have done a verify and fix of the internal hard drive. No joy.__Thanks,_Clay
