Re: Error Message File Not Found (Data Fork, -43)



I'm running Toast 10 Titanium on a Macbook (2.1 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, running Mac OS X 10.5.8) and started a backup of my files from an external USB hard drive. I chose to make data discs on Mac & PC compatible mode which spans 50 DVD discs.


Burning was okay so far and took pretty much the better part of a day. Problem came up when I had to pause DVD burning at disc 45 and pack up my stuff and continue DVD burning at a latter time (put Macbook on hibernate and unplugged external hard drive).


When I tried to continue DVD burning process, (plugged back external hard drive in USB port, wake the Macbook from hibernate) I inserted a blank DVD disc to continue burning the rest of the discs but an error message came up saying "<File> could not be accessed (Data fork, -43)" then I click OK to continue and get a message saying "Couldn't complete the last command because a file could not be found. Result Code = -43" and had no choice but to click on OK. Then the disc ejects and asks for a blank DVD to continue burning the rest of the discs. But when I do that, I keep getting the same message the disc that I just put in gets ejected.


Is there a way I can skip the file that can't be found or quit the burning process such that the 45 discs I've already burned will still be usable? I hope someone can help. I'd very much appreciate it.

I think that when the external drive was unmounted and remounted it replaced some hidden files with updated files so they no longer matched what Toast had in its list.


I don't think there is any way to skip a file and continue. However, you previously burned discs may all be okay. Have you tried inserting them to see if they mount? Do they contain the Roxio Restore application? Assuming they mount okay you can also index their contents using DiskCatalogMaker RE that's inside the Toast Titanium folder. Presuming this is all okay (I don't know if it is or not) then you can create a new series containing just the files that weren't burned in the first series.
