    anyone else having problem uploading files to public folder on idisk? i have a 60/60 connection, so thats not the issue. weird thing is that at times speed is normal, but mostly it takes an hour!!! to upload a 40 meg wav file, and more than often the file transfer is broken midway. im so effin bugged by this.:mad::mad::mad:, any advice? i have Dropbox also, but want this to work..

    it's iDisk being full of suck. iDisk is really slow, no matter how fast your connection, it only uploads so fast to the server.

    For large files, it is possible that your conectino is timing out due to the slow transfer. I had something similar where I would try to upload a large file and it would never finish successfully. I think it had something to do with if you don't "use" the connection for a while, it drops. I was able to upload the large file finally by perodically browsing through some folders in my iDisk using a new Finder window while it was uploading the large file. This way the connection stayed "active" and the transfer completed.

    I know it doesn't make sense but it worked for me. Maybe give it a try?

    The real solution though is that there is none, unless Apple decides to improve iDisk. I'm pretty satisfied with MM on the whole for its other features, but the iDisk is sorely lacking. Popular belief is that something may be done about this when that NC data center goes online, we shall see.

    I uploaded about 350Mb yesterday in about 40-50min. Works fine for me.
