Unable to Copy Files Over To Qnap Nas

I'm having issues copying files from a USB attached HDD (formatted by the NAS to EXT3) over to a NAS device.
First some background info (maybe relevant or may not be): I upgraded the HDD in my NAS and now I'm unable to copy the files over from the old HDD while plugged into the NAS. Also tried copying over from windows 7 (64 & 32 bit) as well as an XP machine using EXT2FDS & IFS resulting in perpetual re-booting of all three machines.
As a result of that I got a brainwave to try copying the files over from a bootable Linux DVD (Unbuntu 11.04) to the Nas over the network.
I am in Unbuntu now but I am having problems copying to the NAS. It seems to work when I select individual files but when I select a folder/folders/sub folders to copy over an "error while copying" dialog box appears appears. For example: in "Show More Details" here is the copied text from an error: "Error stating file '/media/f0745264-c91b-4528-9fe3-e3469cdb13cc/Public/MANUALS/oliver_manual_99_99GM_tractors_O_7_1956.pdf': Input/output error"

If there is any other method I can get these files copied over please let me know.

Appreciate if anyone can help me out, thank you in advance.

The usb external is attached to the nas? Does the hard drive contain the OS? Did you replace the OS?

It is a Startech brand Sata to USB device and it is plugged into a PC natively running windows 7 but I have it booted to Unbuntu 11.04 through a bootable CD to copy the files over to the Linux based Qnap TS-109 NAS device.
