I realize I am a weak link for helps, however, in the past I had a 
similar sounding problem internally between partitions.  When I was 
unable to resolve the matter, I sent the data in smaller chunks and 
succeeded.  I am thinking like 5 to 10gb chunks.  If it works, at least 
you get the data transferred, even though you may still have the 
problem, and you can still work the problem.
