File transfer limit 2.8MB

Hi all, I know that Blackberry has a file transfer limit of 2.8MB. But recently I realized that the 4.6 JDE simulator 9000, allows a file transfer limit of 1GB. So is there a way I can get this file transfer limit dynamically for different simulators? Thanks in advance.

Re: File transfer limit 2.8MB

How are you transferring the file?  This link explains the limits for the MDS Connection Service.

Re: File transfer limit 2.8MB

Hi Mark,

 

Even I am facing the same problem.

 

No matter how we transfer file to device memory (From desktop manager or Device file explorer), we always get an error if the file size is greater than 2.83 mb. So, that means, BB doesn't allow larger files to be copied into device memory. But in 4.6 JDE simulaor 9000, it allows upto 1GB file to be transfered on device memory!

 

So, the question here is: How can we know the maximum file size that can be transfered on the device memory?

 

 

 

Thanks,

- Rohan

Re: File transfer limit 2.8MB

Are you using Windows Explorer's drag and drop to copy files to the BlackBerry device (acting as a USB drive)?  Or are you reading the file from an application you created?  If so, how is this being done?

Re: File transfer limit 2.8MB

Are you trying to transfer files to /system or /store/home/user/  ?

 

I have found that the non-mountable file system (/system/ on the 9000 or /store/home/user/) on everything else has a 3 MB file size limit.

Re: File transfer limit 2.8MB

Hi Mark,

 

Thanks for the reply. As I mentioned in the previous post, no matter how I copy the files (Either from Windows Explorer's drag and drop OR reading a file from an application I create), In both these ways, if I try to copy the file on device memory (i.e. /store/home/user/myFile.jpg), it always gives me the error.

 

Thanks,

Re: File transfer limit 2.8MB

Since this is not a development issue, I recommend posting this question in the General BlackBerry Smartphone Functions and Features forum.

 

I'm going to leave this thread here in case the original poster was trying to do this programmatically.

Re: File transfer limit 2.8MB

Sure Mark,

 

I guess the author has posted it here coz she is trying to do it programmatically.

 

 

 

Thanks,
