    I have a song on my droid I want to share with somone and when I try and attach it to an email it says the attachment is to large. Are there any free apps for sharing large files?

    Not that I am aware of. you could try uploading it from a website such as Rapidshare or Megaupload if your browser/theirs will support it.

    yeah, I was trying to get around this last night with trying to send a video that was just a little over a min too long and couldn't send it video message or through gmail and resorted to uploading to my computer and sending it that way. irritated me that I couldn't find a way around it. I tried uploading it to youtube and said that it would have to use a wifi connection which I didn't have at my home.

    you have to record videos in the lowest setting possible to send them in an MMS. to upload to youtube, you're stuck with having to use WiFi.

    create an FTP server and use the to upload, use WiFi mount to mount your SD card, find a zip program to zip the file or just attach your phone to a PC.

    remember, it's still a phone. some of those video files can be more than 10MB, which is the limit of GMAIL attachments. i just took a video the other day that was 33MB. GMAIL didn't even attempt to attach it to a message.

    It's really simple actually

    Plug your phone into your computer. At the top of your phone screen (this is with a Motorola, I don't know how it is with Eris) where it says you have new text's, missed a call, etc., you'll see the USP port "picture"; pull that screen down. You'll see where it tells you your phone is connected to your compter. Touch that line. A message will come up that tells you your USP port is connected to your computer, do you want to mount your phone to your computer? Press "mount". PRESTO! You are now connected to your computer and can upload your files from there. Then look at your computer screen and it will ask you what steps to take next, which is no different than uploading pictures from your digital camera.

    Granted, it's not very handy if you're not readily connected to your computer and you'd like to email your video/song right away, but if it's something that can wait, you've at least got that option.

    Hope this was helpful.

    OP wasn't referring to transferring files off of his device. Only sending it through email/mms.

    Right, but the problem is there is no quick solution to sending them through email/mms unless you've got the right app...and that takes time finding. Everyone has a suggestion on the 'right' one, but not everyone's suggestion is going to work out for someone elses phone.

    I don't talk all the jargon the hackers and programmers talk. My sister is the whiz with all of that, she can hack, break into, re-route, program and re-program...you name it. All I know is that email/mms isn't an option unless you've got the right app and finding the right one isn't a quick fix. I don't care how computer savy a person is. So, start with the basics...plug into said computer and work it out from there.

    It's better than nothing. Right?

    There are quite a lot of free file hosting sites out in the internet, so I tried going into two of them that I use often on my computer.

    YouSendIt: Online File Sharing and collaboration with FTP Replacement - Send Large Files and Email Attachments with Managed File Transfer Solution - yousendit.com

    Free large file hosting. Send big files the easy way! - sendspace.com

    I was going to check if I could upload a file from the SD card on both of those sites, but it says on the page "Uploads Disabled" on the button where you would normally click on and browse for the file that you want to upload. I wonder why that is?

    You'd have to ask the OP. There may be a reason why mounting isn't an option.

    found an app called "attachEmail"

    I links with gmail quite well.. can send 11 meg songs and bigger and Astro won't.
    I just sent another and the total size once it got to my computer email was 13287K in size!... I haven't tried bigger yet.

    Astro "looks" like it sent it but when you go to your sent box in gmail, you will see it didn't send the attachment as it warns the file is too big to attach when in astro.

    "attachEmail" simply browses to the file and you touch the file you want to send and it gives you a multiple of choices to send by... pick "gmail" and hit send, it goes!

    It looks like it sends pretty quick but it actually takes a few seconds to send a big file if your just on 3g.

    I tested it and it works!..... don't know why astro can't do it?.... I sent them a complaint.
    Better yet, Why can't the droid do it stock without needing an app?

    Now I'm trying to figure out how to "receive" files that big... seems nothing wants to open mp3s or M4a's that big once I get them that I can find.

    droid app for big uploads that gmail can't handle

    Pixelpipe Pro is free and available through the Android Market. I was able to set it up to upload large (>10 MB) videos to my youtube account. I tried to use attachEmail as suggested by "windstrings" to email video directly to youtube (i.e. xxx@m.youtube.com) but received error message.

    The app "attachemail" doesn't seem to get much attention but its the only one I know of that allows very large attachments via gmail.. sounds like pixelpipe pro is good for the other stuff.

    Astro file manager

    I had same problem was trying to send 5mb+ videos to gmail this weekend and kept getting file is to large, my friend was able to send me similar video with his iphone so I was pissed off to say the least, I had already convinced him to get a droid this weekend, because we went on a 5 hour trip down the interstate and the droid had 3g all the way while his iphone was in and out of 3g and was lucky most of the time just to have any signal much less 3g, so I was showing him everything the droid can do and then at the end of this weekend tried to send that video and couldnt do it. So I've been researching it and found out if you just access the videos through astro and long press it, it will give you option to send the high res vid, to gmail or another email account... problem solved!

    I think Astro has its limitations too.. let us know how large a file you can send.

    I used attachemail and have sent 18mb files before.. "never tried larger yet.


    Recieving them I use blackmoon attachsave

    Looks like that one actually sends to a private server where someone can download it for up to 72 hours.....
