Cannot download bundle files from the FTP server

I'm trying to download (I'm using a Mac) the resource bundle (specifically, the "hg19" folder in the bundle), but without any success. I constantly got an error message like this:

The Finder can’t complete the operation because some data in “dbsnp_138.hg19.excluding_sites_after_129.vcf.gz” can’t be read or written.
(Error code -36)

Could anyone please help me with this?

Thank you very much!

Never mind, I figure it out.
FYI, I can use the terminal to download from the FTP directly to my server like this:

wget ftp://[email protected]/bundle/hg19/*

where the code will download everything in the hg19 folder to the current directory.
