AppleEvent Time out -1712

Recommended Posts

Trying to have FM run a script that copy's a folder off a CD to a volume drive. After about a minute I get an error from AppleScript, that an AppleEvent timed out and the error is -1712.

How do I lengethen the expected time out? I added a wait with 3600 seconds but that didn't do it...

Here is my code...


tell application "Finder"


select every item of container window of folder "LOW" of disk "PO 4026"

with timeout of 3600 seconds

copy selection to folder "LOW" of folder "PROJECT" of disk "Photo Library"

end timeout

end tell
