    I have been trying to upload a 136MB file to iDisk and each time it loads it then gets stuck at "finishing upload". It just stays there. Anyone else experience this or have a fix? This is happening when I try to upload from the mobileme website.

    Upload large files via Transmit. Use the following keyboard shortcut to connect to your iDisk: Shift + Command + i

    When you say it gets stuck, are you waiting long enough to let it finish? I have found that big files can take a LOT of time to finish and at times can stall a bit BUT eventually finish with some more waiting

    I had a support call with apple about this and the way they explained the upload process was quite odd but explains the "finishing" delay

    Try waiting longer

    Try compressing the file first

    Try compressing or zipping the file first... Right click on the file then choose "compress". Then try to upload the zip file.

    The file I wanted to upload was zipped. And as far as waiting it out I've waited hours for it to wrap up and it never does. I ended up canceling the transfer and using finder instead then syncing. That seemed to work. Just seems to be an issue with the web upload. Even still the process should be faster.
