OS X :: Unable To Unarchive (Error 1 - Operation Not Permitted)
Nov 23, 2008
I have a question that was sort of touched on in mac forums but never solved for someone else back in 2007. I have been scouring the net to find a remedy to my problem. I have mac os 10.4.11. I have a zipped file (final cut pro) that i am trying to open and when I try to open it i get a "unable to unarchive (error 1 - operation not permitted)" message. I followed the guidelines from the old thread for the other personIi repaired permissions but when I tried to download onyx it told me the the onyx version needs a higher OS (10.5 I beleive) than I have and other efforts to find the onyx for my mac have failed. I have also downloaded x slimmer and Xserve raid driver for people that use final cut pro.
I get the following message frequently: "The operation couldn't be completed.Operation not permitted.(NSPOSIXErrorDomain:1)".I need to restart the computer inorder to access the internet.I connect via wireless and other wireless items on the network don't have this issue.
I am experiencing some problems , and want to restore my system copy I have backed up on an external HDD ( WD firewire ,Mac OS Extended Journaled ) to my Mac, in the past I made a full system copy using Super Duper, and now want to install it back on my Mac , Ive re booted while holding the option ( alt ) key and the Mac is now running from my external HDD back up copy, ive just opened up the Disk Utility ,and ive entered my external HDD in the Source box, and entered my internal HDD in the Destination, and ticked Erase destination. When I click Restore , I get this message ..
I have been attempting to download AIM on my laptop and keep receiving the following error: Unable to unarchive "aim.bin" into "Desktop" (Error 45 - Operation not supported.) I was successful in downloading and installing on my iMac but not so on my MacBook. Both are using the Leopard operating system.
I am getting this error "The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -50)." when I try to transfer files from my Mac Mini to my External Harddrive which is connected to my Airport Extreme. " The error does not appear to happen all the time. It does seem consistent if I am transfering files and then try to transfer more.
The files I am transferring are .mp4. It does not appear to care about the size of the file, it happens with small files and large files, I can transfer some large folders (2.54G). I can connect the hard-drive externally directly to the mac mini and it will transfer any file.
When I try to empty my Trash with a certain app in it I get error code -8003. I can't find reference to that code anywhere and do not know how to clean up the trash. "The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -8003)."
Info: iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.7), iMac-24, iMac-27, G5, G4, G3, iBook, etc.
I wanted to delete a file in my dekstop, but i can't delete it.. It pops out a message like this "The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -8072)."I have used "rm -rf" this kind of sudo, but it doesn't help. I can't even rename it also.
I've been getting the "error -36" "operation could not be completed because file "" could not be read or written when trying to backup one external firewire drive to another drive (either another external firewire, or my internal startup drive). After the error, the copy operation will hang and be impossible to cancel, forcing a find relaunch about 50% of the time.
-Disk Utility finds no problems with the disk -The filenames do not contain illegal characters -If I try enough times the problem file(s) will eventually copy, but then another file will become the problem, suggesting that the file itself is NOT actually corrupted. After successful copy, the file (an MP3) plays just fine. Subsequently, I will have trouble copying that same file again.
There are no strange noises from the HD and I can feel the vibrations from it spinning as normal. My guess is that the HD is on its last legs and is acting flaky but that the data is still OK. What can I do to rescue the data before the damn thing dies completely? Now before anyone jumps on me to UTFSE, I have searched extensively, but havent found anything that addresses my specific situation (especially the part about the files being randomly OK and not OK.
I got this message: "The operation can�t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -1407)." each time I try to put a folder inside my external hard drive into the trash, I don't have this bug for a simple file
I have a problem when I'm transferring files from my powerbook g4 to external hard disks such as lacie or ipod. It keeps popping up "The finder cannot Complete operation because some data in File AVI could Not be Read or Written. (Error Code -36).
So a few weeks ago, I copied my entire music library (97.5gb) onto my external hard drive (Mac OS X Extended, Journaled) to save space on my boot drive. Since then, I've been able to update my iPod, receiving the message "Attempting to copy to the disk <iPod name> failed. The disk could not be read from or written to".
I formatted my iPod to see if that was the problem, but it still won't copy. So, in order to right that situation, I tried to copy all my music back to my regular HD, but now am receiving the Finder Error code -36 "The Finder cannot complete the operation because some of the data in (name of file) could not be read or written." I can't format the external drive either because then I would lose all of my music.
I have a 2011 Mac Mini. I try to connect to another Mac via Remote Disk. The other computer shows up and the disk appears in the window. However, when I select the disk, I get a message telling me that the operation failed because the original could not be found. Apple Troubleshooting tells me that it has something to do with the firewall. So I turned off the firewall, but I still get the same message. Both computers are running 10.7.3.
I have an old 867 Mhz G4 MDD that I would like to be able to leave running 24/7 as a server, jukebox etc. Right now it's noisy (these things are legendarily loud) and power hungry. It won't have to work very hard. What could I do to make it efficient and quiet enough to run 24/7, without dumping a lot of $$$?
Obviously what I really need is a mac mini, but this will have to do.
I have MacBook Pro, i have leopard running on it, when i try to install Snow Leopard on it, it gives an error!!!Operation could not be completed. (OSProductManagerDomain error 100.)This error pops-up when i double click on "Install Mac OS X".
I tried running Disk utility and repair permissions. Restarted my MacBook, pressed "C", no luck...
I am not able proceed further... Please any help would be great...
I have a column that has name / phone and i'm trying to break out the two into two separate columns. I can't figure out a way to do this? I'm trying to figure out to use the line break to trigger the column separation but no luck? Here is an example of what i have in a column:
I'm planning of sending in my white macbook to AppleCare for a few repairs regarding the white casing (cracks) but do not want to send in my Western Digital 500GB Hard Drive.
I called AppleCare and they said they prefer it when you send in the original hard drive, for whatever reason they stated. My personal reason why I don't want to send in my 500GB Hard Drive is that I have a ton of files in there that are important and don't have another 300+ hard drive lying around to back everything up. Another reason is that my Leopard Family Pack disc I purchase years ago is at my parent's house in New York and I live in California, so getting it would be a huge hassle considering it's somewhere in boxes of storage and my folks are in Venice till the 15th of June.
Look, essentially what I'm freaking out over is that I've heard many cases that when you send in your computer to applecare, its not uncommon to get a macbook back with an erased hard drive.
I just don't wanna deal with the hassle. So am looking to avoid it altogether. Doing so bytaking out my 500GB HD and popping in the original 80GB HD that the Mac came with. I thought I had Leopard in there but when I put in the 80GB HD in the Macbook and turned on the Mac, a confused faced folder came on and turned off.
I want to send in my Macbook with the 80GB HD and that HD to have Leopard on it...so I decided to do the same method I used when I transferred everything from my 80GB HD to my 500GB HD when I first purchased it.
I used SuperDuper! application, free version...but it didn't work.
I set it up to "Copy: Mac HD to Untitled" (Untitled was the name of the 80GB since I erased it when I got my 500GB HD hoping to use it for Time Machine but never did)
I tried this twice, each time taking about 2 hours to transfer and copy to the untitled HD. I tried "back up all files" & "back up user files." But after this process was done and I popped in the untitled HD into the Mac I continued to get the same confused folder face..twice.
Any help on the matter is really appreciated as I'm highly considering not even sending my Macbook in with the 500GB HD to completely avoid any possible frustation if that HD was to magically erased.
im running mac os x 10.4.6 on a g4 powermac. ive got toast 9, but whenever ive tried to burn a cd, it gives me the following message " sense key = illegal request sense code 0 x 20 invalid command operation code" and then "couldnt set up the track for writing"
although I have been successful in burning a cd from itunes. im guessing its something to do with the settings, but im completelyey stuck.
I have copied my iTunes folder on a NAS hard disk. Now I want to delete it (as it interferes with my sonos music library). However, I get a message that This cannot be done because I have "no permission to assess some of the items".
I have been having this problem reoccur for the past couple days, but I don't know what is causing it. Occasionally, when I press the volume keys on my keyboard, it doesn't make the "click" sound (I don't have it set so that it doesn't make noise). I still have this problem when I use my earphones.
I made sure that the audio output in my system preferences is set to "internal speakers", made sure that my OS is up to date and have even tried resetting my computer. Nothing seems to work. And it really happens out of the blue as well -- I would be watching a video or listening to some music with no issue at all, browse around some other pages and come back to see that I can't hear the audio anymore. This doesn't seem to happen while I'm watching the videos though.
Eventually after repeatedly increasing and decreasing the volume (with no sound coming out of my computer) this pops up and does not allow me to change the volume at all even if I press the volume keys on my keyboard:
Just returned from the apple store. They can't explain what happened but there is a FileVault error and it cant be fixed. We now have a parallel login but no software or files are on it. The tech at the store suggested someone who may be able to get into the FileVault. This just suddenly happened with no forewarning. The iMac is under a year old.
i recently got 2 updates in MAS and as soon as i tried to update, i got errors for both apps. It's saying unable to run installation: I tried to repair permissions but gettin the same error every time. What is the problem?

My hard drive crashed. bought new computer..... have backup dvd's........... it seems to freeze itune....... but if I leave it alone it will give me an error that says it is unable to restore because of error -69..... some of my songs are restored but only like 100 out of 700.......and I have the shuffle, nano, and Itouch..... very headachey.
I have an Imac 17" Intel Core 2 Duo (5,1) 2ghz late 2006 model. Just recently the superdrive has perished for what ever reason & I have read that some times if you reinstall the original operating discs that came with the computer, the superdrive may or may not come back to life.
Leopard 10.5.8 with all the updates is the current set up on the imac & I want to put Tiger 10.4.7 back on it. So I'm connecting the Imac to my Mac pro 15.4" (late 2007 model - 2.2ghz 4gb ram intel core 2 duo) via firewire & use the Imac as a target disk. I put the install disc into my mac pro with the imac connected, power down - reboot holding 'C' to boot up the Tiger install disc. The apple logo & spinning wheel appear, but then the screen darkens & a 'You must turn off your computer or hold the power switch for a few seconds appears'
Now I've tried resetting the PRAM,NVRAM & SMC also decreasing the amount of RAM there is in the laptop.But the error is always the same? However if I put leopard 10.5.6 disc in that starts ok, snow leopard 10.6 that starts ok too. But tiger 10.4.7 & leopard 10.5.1 won't start at all? How can I get Tiger 10.4.7 back onto the imac using my mac pro?
Yes the only other way is to replace the superdrive, but I'm not in a position to get it replaced at the minute & if reinstalling the original operating discs rejuvenates the old superdrive, then there's no point.
