    If your using Transmit, then use the iDisk built in preset and you just need your username and password.

    Alternatively you can pick webDAV. The webDAV server I pretty sure is just idisk.mac.com, but I'll check.

    (The iDisk preset is of course using webDAV. It is many times faster than Finder, because Apple have the slowest implementation of the webDAV protocol anywhere, with many redundant, unnecessary calls).

    I don't use FTP to transfer files to MobileMe anymore. Make sure your iDisk is showing under Devices in finder and just drag the files you want to which ever folder you want on iDesk and drop. I move whole websites that way.

    Thanks elppa, did the job :)

    Pomeroy, I have been trying to do that but keep running into errors and killing the transfer. the transmit idisk preset was perfect.
