3 Failures on initial backup - What's going wrong?

I have a 12" powerbook running 10.3.5 - I've got SuperDuper! and am trying to "Backup - All Files" to a Lacie 250 GB external drive (USB). I've tried three times and each time the copy either fails officially, or I turn it off after it sticking for 10 hours on a particular file. (sorry, I didn't copy the exact error messages)

Failure 1: SuperDuper! hung on my enormous trash file. Emptied the trash
Failure 2: Official failure on the users. file. I repaired permissions.
Failure 3: SuperDuper! hung on my music file (which isn't particularly problematic, so I don't know what the problem might be).

Any help would be appreciated. this is an unregistered copy. Will get registration once this works the first time!

Megan -

If you send a note to and attach your SuperDuper!.log (which you'll find off your Home folder in Library/Logs), I'll take a look and see if I can figure out what's going on. A system profiler report, saved in XML format, would really help too.
