    Uploading Zip files

    Hey y'all,

    I split my 60+ MB rar file into 3 files less than 25 MB each.

    The forum will not load it. I have done it through the simple image upload icon and also through the attachment manager.

    Has anyone got any suggestions? This is my Christmas gift or maybe it will be . . .

    No, it just keeps timing out. Well, for some reason it doesn't even actually say timed out, just keeps trying to load.

    You must be experiencing amoeba speed connection.... lol .

    Prepare a small size zip you can prepare... say 5MB and try uploading?

    I'll give it a shot but my cable provider is supposed to be Faaaaaaaaast.

    Though what's the point of such small zips. Might as well upload single images.

    Re: Uploading Zip files

    here's a test, 6.6 MB

    PINGS.rar

    another ~10 MB

    PINGS2.rar

    15MB

    PINGS3.rar

    Well, OK, smaller zips are working so I guess that's the route I'll go. Thanks for the help guys.

    Yes, no problem. It is just a matter of whether a member trusts your file or not (I won't explain in detail unless you ask me to). Sometimes it's easiest to post an image or two and state that you have a zip file or sharing site available. Then it can be requested by someone who sees that you are serious. But it's like asking for a freebie request, sometimes a member will agree to do it and sometimes not. The same is true for opening zips or going to a file sharing site.

    Re: Uploading Zip files

    I've had trouble with attachments of about 5mb myself, first attachment manager crashes, but after a few minutes, its uploaded.

    However, once I tried uploading 15mb, attachment manager did the same.
    So ya, cut it up smaller, or use 3rd party uploader
