Problem burning a disc to a mac from files on a Windows 2003 AD Domain (error Code -36)

As far as Im aware, Ive properly configured the Mac OS 10.4.9 computers in our office to connect to the Windows 2003 SBS server on the network.  Ive used Directory Access to bind them to the AD domain and most of the time things seems to to be operating as they should.  However, I do have this outstanding issue that (I believe) is network related.  

The Finder cannot complete the operation because some data could not be read or written (error code -36)
When burning network files to a disc, I get this error.  I can copy the same files to the desktop and then burn them just fine, but Burn crashes with this error if I drag files directly from the network to the blank CD.

I think this is by design.  Network file system is not the same as MAC file system.

I Believe it has something to do with the PC metadata. Try making a burn folder and dragging the contents from the server to the MACOS. this will create alias's of the files only the finder can see. This will not take any longer than directly burning from the server. If that doesn't work, try

Both Free and may get around the problem.

David, do these program offer an advantage over Burn as far as caching files locally before burning?

As I said, I did copy to the MACOS and burned with success.  The problem is isolated to network files

Thanks for the replies

Both have the ability to burn from the mapped drive directly. Therefore, you do not have to copy, burn, delete. I'd guess the burn folder is the easiest option.

Just drag the data from the network to the local Mac, then burn.  Not elegant, but it works.
