Nokia 3250 - Restriction on sending Media

Hi,

I own a Nokia 3250 - great device! I have many Midi files, (free ones) on my device that I added. If I try to send the Midi files, it tells me the file is protected.

It works with any other kind of file.

Does nokia automaticly block sharing of Midi files?

Is there a way around this?

--

Another question:

I noticed a Tab in my galery labeled Presentations.

What kind of files are those? Powerpoint? (PPT).

Thanks in advance,

Tal

Hiya,

There some Midi files have a protection thing built in... surprising as they're tiny files. This can be edited fairly easily if you've got any Music Studio Software, but if not, I think you're stuck.

I have a few Music Editing Software including:

Nero Wave Editor

Wavelab Lite

What kind of file am I looking for in the Midi file?

Thanks,

Tal

Re: Nokia 3250 - Restriction on sending Media

Doesn't matter how you edit MIDI files. The 3250 (like most Nokia phones) have a built-in, fixed list of file types that built-in apps (like Messaging) refuses to send (forward).

In some cases renaming the file on the device will work, but the recipient will have to be able to rename it back, too.

Note also that the MMS specifications do not support/allow for arbitrary file types to be sent as MMS (there is - or at least used to be - a, so called, MMS Conformance document on http://www.openmobilealliance.org that lists the supported attachement file types/formats for MMS).

But what if I try to send it through bluetooth?
