Where do you get the error. At the actual copying or when trying to use it

Also, are you doing this copy in Explorer View or in SharePoint Designer

Once its open - Right click, copy the default.master

Right click paste into the master page folder

You have full admin access, but do you have it on a subweb or list, or do you have it on the site collection
Are you the site collection administrator
Does the error persist if you are the site collection administrator
Does the error persist if you open SharePoint Designer on its own without browsing to the site, and then do File -> Open Site, and browse into the _catalog/masterpages to make the copy
What error happens if you try to make the copy via Explorer View
