    I cut a file from itunes in garageband to make it into a short file so i can send it through bluetooth to my cell phone to make it as my ringtone.... but it wont let me send it, a box comes up and says: "File Not Accepted: The target device claims it will not accept a file of the type you are trying to send" Is there a way to change the type of file it is so it can be compatible with my phone?? If so, how?? Is it possible?:confused:

    You can try just manually editing the extension on the file by renaming it, but the phone still may not be able to play it. What kind of file is it?

    the type is AIFC audio file... then i changed it in itunes to a MPEG-4 Audio File... they both dont work... when i accept the file on my phone the dialogue box comes up on the computer saying "internal error..." i guess my phone is just not accepting the file for some reason... its 344kb.. i wonder if there is a way to make it smaller and more compatible... sorry im just not familiar with bluetooth that much..

    Does the file fully download onto the phone before it gives you that error? In other words, is it just that the phone can't play that file type once the file is on the phone, or does Bluetooth refuse to send it over entirely, and it never gets on the phone?

    You don't happen to be with Verizon do you? Verizon disables OBEX (basically bluetooth) on all their newer phones. You can change the firmware of your phone to Alltel (called flashing), but this is risky and voids your warrenty.

    If not Verizon, what type of phone are you using?

    My phone is the Motorola L2.. the carrier is FIDO
    Basically, my phone is connected to the computer, and the file is sent to my phone. However, when i start press accept on my phone, an error box comes up on my macbook saying "File Transfer Failed Internal Error"...... Its odd i cant find any info on the net or anything...

    the file transfer failed: internal error

    I'm having the same problem with my Motorola RAZR v3.

    I'm trying to copy a midlet over using bluetooth, and the 'internal error' message comes up after I click accept on the phone.

    Any ideas?

    Phones generally accept 3GP audio formats. I put such a format audio file on mine and my wives' Moto phones via BlueTooth.

    This will convert to 3GP from anything (Free): http://www.ffmpegx.com/

    FYI merely changing the extension does not change the file format.

    And yes, Verizon stupidly disables BlueTooth file exchange (OBEX, object exchange) protocols. And now Verizon will charge $0.15 to send/receive single a SMS message (or IM), $0.25 from International users (if you lack a Messaging Package)! Woo-hoo!

    Apple really should have gone the MVNO route instead of using Cingular, oh sorry, AT&T v3.0.

    transfer problems

    I should mention that I'm using Cingular. Do they disable file transfer too?

    Cingular: Motorola disables file upload

    Well, I just spoke with a Cingular representative at one of the (many) stores in our area. He claims that Motorola does not allow program file uploads to any of their phones. He says that it will only work for full-on PDAs.

    Can anyone independently verify this? Is he blowing smoke? Or is it actually Cingular who disables this functionality? It doesn't really matter in the long run. I clearly can't do what I want with my V3. Now I need to track down a (relatively) cheap PDA that can run MIDLets. Any recommendations? I'm developing through XCode, with the mpowerplayer emulation environment. It sucks, but what're you gonna do.:rolleyes:
