I'm trying to connect to a WebDAV share on a windows computer. My computer is running OSX 10.5, and while it connects, every write gives me an error:

The Finder cannot complete the operation because some data in "filename" could not be read or written. (Error code -36)

Windows boxes can read and write just fine to the share. I thought OSX supported WebDAV?

This is for an older version of OSX but it is related to the error code you're getting. Mac OS X 10.4: Error -36 alert displays when connecting to a Windows server

Unfortunately, this is specifically WebDAV not SMB/CIFS. – jldugger Jan 19 '10 at 18:25
